we request the Government of India not to shift the Principal Bench of IPAB from Chennai and further, request to fill up the post of Chairman in Intellectual Property Appellate Board immediately. CHAIRMAN, BAR COUNCIL


The Intellectual Property appellate board is functioning at Chennai from the
year 2003 and vested with the jurisdiction as an Appellate Forum as well as Original
Forum for adjudicating rectification petitions. For the last few years, the post of
Chairman was not filled up by the Government of India.
Now, it appears that there is a move to shift the Principal Bench of IPAB from
Chennai to outside the state of Tamilnadu. Since, we have received several
representations from various associations about the shifting of Principal Bench of
IPAB from Chennai to other state and it would affect the interest of the General
Public as well as the lawyers practicing in Tamilnadu, the Bar Council has passed a
resolution by circulation vide R.O.C.No. 180 of 2020, requesting the Government of
India not to shift the Principal Bench of IPAB from Chennai and further, requested to
fill up the post of Chairman in Intellectual Property Appellate Board immediately.
Therefore, we request the Government of India not to shift the Principal Bench
of IPAB from Chennai and further, request to fill up the post of Chairman in
Intellectual Property Appellate Board immediately.
CHAIRMAN, BAR COUNCIL.
