Trademark Examination Report
Once a trademark registration application is submitted and examined by a Trademark Officer, a trademark examination report is sent to the trademark applicant or the person authorised by the trademark applicant. The trademark examination report is also put up on the trademark office website along with details of the trademark application. The applicant or the authorised agent then has a chance to submit a reply to the trademark examination report with a rebuttal, if there is an objection by the trademark examiner. The response is then considered, and if the objections can be waived on the basis of the applicant’s response, the trademark application is accepted for registration, and the trademark is published in the trademark journal.

E. Vague Specification of Goods or Services

F. Same or Similar Trademark Exists
In case, same or similar earlier trademarks of different trademark owner are found on records in respect of the same or similar description of goods or services; then an objection is raised.
G. Trademark Lacks Distinctive Character
Trademarks which are not capable of distinguishing the goods/services of one person from those of another person are devoid of distinctive character and thus liable for objection under absolute grounds for refusal of trademarks.
H.Trademark is Deceptive
An objection can be raised by the Trademark Examiner, if the mark has the potential for the deception of the public by reason of something inherent in the mark itself or in its use, like nature, quality or geographical origin of the goods or services. An objection as to deceptive trademark can be overcome if the applicant seeks to exclude goods or services from the specification by filing Form TM-16.
