Subscriber Advance Payment Scheme (SAP) of PIS

In order to provide Patent Information Service to any interested person/organisation, PIS operates subscriber advance payment scheme. Under this scheme, users interested in availing regular service by way of procurement of Patent Information, may remit an amount of not less than Rs. 1,000/- or in multiples thereof and open an account in their names. On receipt of this payment, the user will be allotted a subscriber account number by office of the Patent Information System (PIS) Nagpur.

The amount towards the cost of services rendered by PIS will be adjusted against the advance payment made by the subscriber against his/her account number.

The service will be rendered by PIS, on receipt of written request from the subscriber either by letter, telefax or e-mail (paper copy in confirmation of e-mail duly signed is required). On providing the service, PIS will intimate to the subscriber, the cost of service rendered and the balance available in his/her account. If, at any time, the balance amount in the account of the subscriber falls short of Rs. 200/-, the subscriber will be informed of the same with a request to remit further amount immediately. The subscriber on receipt of such intimation has to remit the amount which shall not be less than Rs. 1,000/- at any time. If at any time the subscriber wants to deposit further amount in their account, such payment also should not be less than Rs. 1,000/-.

At the end of each financial year i.e. after 31st march of each year, PIS will issue a statement of account containing details of the amount received, cost of service rendered and the balance available subscriber will scrutinize the account and return a copy of the statement duly certifying the correctness of the account.

No special form is needed to open the above mentioned account. A request on plain paper clearly specifying that the user wishes to open an account under Subscriber Advance Payment Scheme alongwith payment as mentioned above is all that is needed.

All payments may be made in favour of Patent Information System, Nagpur, by way of Money Order, or Demand Draft drawn on a scheduled Bank at Nagpur
