Pointing out that proposals for patents and copyrights are very less, he added that this led to violation and duplication. The only way to avoid this is to go for patenting intellectual property, he added.

He also stated that the Government  initiatives  like Make in India, Digital India and Skill India  go a long way in encouraging entrepreneurship in youth.

The function was presided over by   S N Rangaprasad, Director, MSME Development Institute, Bengaluru. In his address  he said enterprises can get  help in the process of filing for patents at the three  intellectual property rights cells in Karnataka. Half the cost of the process is borne by the Government  through the Karnataka Council for Technological Upgradation. Only micro, small and medium enterprises can get assistance, he added.

K Socrates, Deputy Director, MSME-DI, Mangaluru, G Nagaraja, Assistant Director and others were present .
