Recently, the Delhi High Court took cognizance of the inconvenience caused to litigators due to vacancies at the IPAB (covered on the blog earlier here and here) and issued a notice to the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) demanding a status report on the appointment of Technical Members to the IPAB. The status report submitted to DIPP revealed that advertisements to fill the posts of Technical Members for the Copyright and Trademarks side (2 members each) and Patents side (1 member) had been issued on July 25, 2018, and the DIPP is currently in the process of interviewing candidates that have applied and shall complete appointments within 3 months. The Delhi High Court fixed the matter for May 24, 2019, for progress updates.
