Therefore they request you to forward the soft copies of the patent applications filed by your institution which are not searched with the application numbers to the email of the Patent Branch - . Don't send the soft copies of already searched applications . It is better if you can provide them the contact details of inventors (emails) too.

This request is especially made for UBL cells of universities and other research institutions.
