On receiving the trademark registration application, the registrar processes the same and issues an “Examination Report”. The trademark examiner can raise an objection for registration of the proposed trademark.
The Principle of Natural Justice gives the applicant an opportunity to submit a written reply for the objection raised. The written reply should contain facts, reasons and supporting evidence as to “why the mark should be registered in favour of the applicant”. If the examiner finds the reply sufficient and addresses all the concerns raised by him then the application would be allowed to be published in “Trademark Journal” before the registration.
