A POA from the inventor accompanies the application. One can enter National Phase in India within 31 months in case of a PCT application. These documents need to be in ENGLISH.

Do provide the applicant details to enable us to prepare the (Power of Attorney form) POAs as per the requirements of Intellectual Property office of India; we shall then send the POAs for signing to you.

A POA needs to be stamped by a Govt. agency after paying the appropriate fee and then it is to be signed by the applicant.

The Patent/Trademark Office allows the POA to be filed at a later stage during the prosecution of the application and there is no late fee or any penalty associated with such later filing.
