The design authority in India is the Office of Controller General of Patents, Design and Trademarks. Headquartered in Kolkata, the other branches of the Indian Patent Office are located in Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai. There is only one branch for the Indian Design Office which is located in Kolkata and accordingly, design applications filed in the other three offices are sent to Kolkata for further processing.
