What is the duration of protection?

Initial registration and each renewal of registration of a Trade mark shall last for ten years and will then fall due for renewal at ten- yearly intervals for as long as the mark does not fall liable to revocation, principally for non-use. Renewal must be made within six months before expiration of such term or any subsequent term of ten years. However at the time of renewal no change shall be made in the mark or the list of the goods in respect of which the mark is registered except that goods may be eliminated from the list. A period of grace of six months shall be allowed for the renewal of a registered trademark after its term has expired subject to payment of a charge for the delay.
