The Court had earlier this month proposed the Rules subsequent to establishment of the Intellectual Property Division (IPD) in the High Court, to deal with all matters related to Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).

The IPD will deal with original proceedings, Writ Petitions (Civil), CMM, RFA, FAO on Intellectual Property Rights disputes, except those required to be dealt with by the Division Bench.

The IPDs have been constituted based on the committee's recommendations constituted by Chief Justice DN Patel and composed of Justice Prathiba M. Singh and Justice Sanjeev Narula.

The committee was constituted to streamline and comprehensively review how a large quantum of IPR cases should be dealt with; they have submitted their report on IPR and non-IPR subjects.

Benches for the IPDs shall be notified by the Chief Justice from time to time and exclusive IPD Benches are also likely to be created for dealing with such matters.

The Rules consist of 41 Rules including definitions, procedure for appeals, original petitions, writ petitions, suits, recording of evidence, intervention by third parties, summary adjudication, general clauses, guidelines of written submissions and timelines for oral submissions, costs, Appeals from orders of the IPD etc.
