Thank you Indranil, Sushil for all the training sessions and Atulya for organizing it.
It was very useful indeed and gives me an excellent perspective on a lot of topics. I would perhaps time to time approach you for any clarifications.
ADITYA CHAKRAVARTI,(Legal Counsel, SABIC)
Prosecution before the USPTO
The course on USPTO prosecution was very interesting, helpful and easy to understand. The course covered the fundamentals of US patent law in good detail. It was highly relatable with practical applicability; the faculty is highly experienced and shared their day-to-day experiences on various aspects of patent drafting and prosecution practices. Also, thanks to GIIP for organising this course in an efficient manner.
SOUMYA SUNDARI,(Senior Patent Analyst and Patent Agent, Lakshmikumaran and Sridharan Attorneys)
Thank you for organising wonderful course on patent drafting and prosecution before USPTO. The content of the course was well thought through and provides insights of each and every aspects of the patent filing, prosecution and infringement proceedings in the USA. Specifically, discussion on drafting of patent application is very helpful. Thank you to Indranil Sarkar and Sushil Iyer for providing detailed analysis on Assignments response with valuable opinion on important aspect.
I would also thank you Atulya, for organising this wonderful course. It was a great learning experience and I wish you keep organising more such courses.
Dear Sushil Iyer, Indranil Sarkar,
It was a pleasure to connect with the both of you. I really appreciate you guys giving the time and efforts in teaching every aspect “in detail” during the course. There was no minute of the presentation that I would say was uninteresting, you guys captivated our minds so well. I really appreciate the patience with which you guys answered all our queries either in the session or via e-mail. I know I can come back to you guys if I have any queries later on, thank you once again for that
NITESH MISHRA,(Senior Research Scientist IPR, Fresenius Kabi Oncology Ltd.)

I did not actively participated in the sessions due to unfavourable session timings. However, the sessions were very good and provided great knowledge on the U.S. patent law.
MEGHNA PRASAD,(Manager, Fresenius Kabi Oncology Ltd)
Prosecution before the USPTO
I would like to thank you and your team for providing me the opportunity to participate in Prosecution before the USPTO program.
I found the course to be very informative, interactive, and thoughtfully structured to focus on the right priorities.
The speakers Sushil & Indranil were very insightful and courteously discussed tips and examples relevant to the attendees’ background. The course captured the highlights of all significant topics and provided me a refresher on core concepts, substantial and procedural developments and relevant practical strategies.
MEGHNA PRASAD,(Intellectual Property Advisor | Patents SAP Labs India Pvt. Ltd)
Prosecution before the USPTO
The course content is exhaustive and gives a good introduction to prosecution at USPTO and other related areas like post grant proceedings, enforcement and licensing. The overview provided has helped me understand the boundaries of the subject and I hope to build further.
I write to thank you for organizing very informative program. The program helped me in understanding the nitty-gritties of US laws along with the reasons behind the amendments. Indranil and Sushil along with other guest trainers, shared real-world scenarios and best practices. The training triggered my interest in various case-laws which are contributing in shaping of the IP laws. These teachings will be very helpful in my consulting profile, for providing suggestions to various businesses.
Best part of our batch was agglomeration of various technical background of IP professionals (Pharma, Chemical, Electronics, Mechanical, etc.) with different expertise (Drafting & Prosecution, Searching & Analytics). The unique diversified blend complimented by trainer’s law expertise, provided us the opportunities of knowing best of different worlds.
Trainers and Atulya were receptive to our feedbacks and made sure to incorporate the suggestions for enhancing the quality of the sessions. Further, trainers made sure to answer our each and every query whether the queries were asked during and after the session.
I will recommend the program for every IP professional irrespective of their IP expertise such as prosecution or analytics.
After completing my B.tech and having a offer in my hand, I was one day thinking about my future when I suddenly realised that most of the crowd of India is either doing M.tech, MBA or going for a normal IT job. what should I do which is more interesting and challenging and also gives me a good and a “different” career path for my life? Next day first thing I goggled was different career options in India and I found this field of “intellectual property”. After exploring for about half a day, this field looked impressive to me and I decided to try it. Next I looked for all the institutes giving this course. Top name that appeared everywhere was GIIP. GIIP is the only institute in India that teaches US, EP and Indian patent law. So I called GIIP and I had a good fortune of talking to Sameer sir who has always helped the students to choose right career path and I would say helping me now also whenever I need him. He explained me everything about IPR and patents, finally I decided to join the PG Diploma course. . Believe me 6 months during the classroom training were awesome. You have so much new to learn. Even in your B.Tech you will not study or learn so much as you will learn during this course. The mentors who use to come from the industry were all amazing. All the people that came were all known and reputed faces of the industry. They were all experts in their field and use to teach us with lot of patience. They all guided us properly about the subject knowledge and future career options in this field.
I am currently working in one of the reputed IP firm in Bangalore as a Patent analyst and I must say GIIP placement team provided me a good platform and company to work with.
My zeal to do something different in life brought me to GIIP and GIIP has really helped me fulfill my zeal. For future candidates I would just say that if you are really planning to enter into this field please do not choose any other institute but GIIP. they are experts in this field and the expert can understand your dream and help you realise it.
SHUBHAM NAYYAR(B.Tech – Electronics and Communication)
Academic excellence and superb faculty is expected from a program such as the IP from GIIP. I would like to mention more on intangible and, in my opinion, the more enduring lifelong benefit/advantage that the GIIP PG diploma in IP has given me.
Doing PG diploma in IP from GIIP was a life-changing experience for me. I found the course to be of an exceptional quality and easy to follow. A beautiful campus setting, classmates from many different cultures and backgrounds, lecturers with interesting insights into current best industry practice and academic thinking, an intimate class-tutor environment, a focus on individual personal development. I found the intensive program to be very much personalized while affording me with valuable one-on-one relationships with the faculty.
GIIP has given me the confidence to move ahead in my career (IP). It gave me the opportunity to step back and reflect on what I do, how well I do it and where I can improve together with the toolkit to progress. It has given me a much greater sense of appreciation for what it is to become strategically focused. But ultimately, it was the opportunity to apply my existing skillset coupled with those skills learned on intellectual properties in my own workplace that has proved most rewarding.
SHEETAL YADAV(M.Tech – Biotechnology)
With due regards to you, I would like to share my experience at G.I.I.P, Delhi. Sir, the last 6 months have been quite enlightening as well as enthralling. The course content provided is very good, the faculties (visiting and permanent) are very good too.
I thank you for providing opportunity to work with Chadha & Chadha as intern and hope your esteemed institute keeps growing.
PIYUSH KAUSHISH(B.Tech – Mechanical Engineer)
Thanks will be not an equivalent term for all the concern shown by the internal and external mentors of GIIP.
Initially because of the encouragement given by Mr. Atulya Nath, CEO and Mr. Sameer Guglani, Business Head, that intended me to to perceive this course.
And in classes Mrs. Rithika Ahuja Mam, Senior IP associate forwarded all of us in a right direction, and gave valuable knowledge about all aspects of intellectual property.”
The promptly suggestions that we got in by the external mentors, will be a knowledge asset which an IP professional feels as a valuable.
Sincere thanks to Mr. Aatish Arora Placement head, who pitched in a right manner for all the candidates placement, and to all My batch members and Mr. Ankur Srivastava, IP associate, who gave the good class ambiance.
I do say the whole credit goes for GIIP, and whatever IP knowledge they are showering is never comparable to anything
MANJU M, B.Tech (Electronics & Communications)

My experience at GIIP has been indeed enriching. The course is excellently designed with various modules covering all the crucial aspects of patents. The regular hands on exercises and assignments which come along with deadlines have greatly enhanced my time management skills. The most interesting part of this course is that you get to interact with various experienced people working in the field of IPR. I want to thank Ms. Ritika for her guidance and support.
A special thanks to Mr. Aatish Arora for being very supportive and encouraging throughout the placements.
KANIKA ARORA, M.Sc (Chemistry), PG Diploma 2014
I found GIIP course brochure in my spam mail last May when I was clueless on what to do after I quit my job as a QC Engineer. I applied, got through and I must say GIIP provides a wonderful learning opportunity in field of IPR. The mentors who come to teach are masters in the field. The knowledge I gained in GIIP in those 6months is significantly great. I joined GIIP with less than adequate knowledge in IP but now I love the field. I got a different career direction altogether that too staying in the same technology field that I completed my bachelors in. Learning is a continuous process at GIIP and a great experience. I’m placed in IPpro Inc. Bangalore as a Patent analyst with a great package. I can’t thank GIIP and all the mentors in Bangalore and Delhi enough!

I have great experience of learning and understanding almost every aspect of Intellectual property especially patents. Trainers (internal as well as external) provided me with excellent knowledge about IP. Also management persons and placement officer assist me at each and every point towards defining the path and goal.
I was more impressed from the culture and relation between students and staff within the institute. Assistance regarding learning, placement and development of students was really good there.
I am grateful to be student of GIIP.
I wish GIIP great success towards educating people IP and creating dynamic alumni in future.

I would like to thank GIIP for providing me with an opportunity to work with India’s best law firm (Remfry & Sagar) in Intellectual Property. The team of GIIP is the best recruitment I have ever seen in my career. I wish them all the success.
GIIP has been fortunate enough to play a vital role in transforming the carriers of professionals who were not satisfied with their jobs and wanting to do something new and exciting. One such student was Mr. Veneed Nair who joined our Post Graduate Diploma Program after gaining a work experience of 4 years. Mr. Veneed had worked for Raychem RPG Ltd and Meta Yage IP Services for a span of two years each. His work experience with Meta Yage IP Services taught him the importance of Intellectual Property. He was aware of the growth prospects in this field and through his eminent contacts in the IP industry he got to know about GIIP as a reputed name in education and training related to Intellectual Property and Patents. He approached us to understand the short term and long term programs that we offer. Our able counselors solved all his doubts, and he was motivated enough to leave her job and join the 9-month Post Graduate Diploma in Intellectual Property Rights and Patent Management. After completing the diploma program he got a job with the prestigious law firm Remfry & Sagar with a much better salary package. Mr.Vineed has now landed over his dream job and is enjoying his work. Team GIIP Congratulates Mr. Vineed Nair for his success, and we are looking forward to set more success stories.

GIIP has proven once again. We provide our students the best of career growth, and not only we assure them 100% Placement, but we provide 100% Placement. We are proud of our students and their accomplishments. We are confident that you would continue to achieve more and more in life, CONGRATULATIONS!!
Jobs are always there and industry needs more and more professionals. It is never difficult to get right job if you have right skills set. It’s wrong to say there are no jobs for “FRESHERS”. If you analyze companies do look for FRESHERS. Now, in the crowd of freshers you need to differentiate yourself and you need to acquire right skill sets and communication which companies are looking for. If you have right skill, right guidance and right institution, NO ONE CAN STOP YOU and here is the example. Ms. Vijaylakshmi Kollu, M.Pharma, was confused about her career. She did not want to go into lectureship or research she wanted more exciting job opportunity. She knew about intellectual property and patents during her post graduation and was searching to pursue higher education in Intellectual Property and Patents, as most pharmaceutical companies file thousands of patents every year. She visited various websites related to this field and discovered up and on our expert advice, she joined our 9 months â€œPost Graduate Diploma Program in Intellectual Property Rights and Patents. We trained her for 6 months in the classroom and for 3 months on internship. She was selected by the leading IP Company in India Sagacious IP, New Delhi as Patent Analyst at a high salary package as per the industry standards.
Vijaylakshmi now loves her job and is more confident too.

GIIP done it once again. We have fulfilled our commitment of assured Campus Placements for another student Mr. Somnath Bannerjee. We are proud of the heights of success achieved by all our students and we are confident that you would continue to achieve more and more in life, CONGRATULATIONS! There is high demand of Freshers with defined skill sets in the market, moreover companies today require Freshers having specialized knowledge in niche areas of technologies. It is never difficult to get right job if you have right skills set. Thus it shall be wrong to say that there are no jobs for “FRESHERS”. Now, in the crowd of fresher’s you need to differentiate yourself and you need to acquire right technical and communication skills which companies are looking for. If you have right skill, right guidance and right institution, NO ONE CAN STOP YOU and here is the example. Mr. Somnath Bannerjee, B-Tech Electronics & Communication, wanted a unique carrier path. He visited us and on our expert advice, he joined our 9 months “Post Graduate Diploma Program in Intellectual Property Rights and Patents”. We trained him for 6 months in the classroom and for 3 months on internship. He was selected by Segacious IP, New Delhi as Patent Analyst. Somnath is now a highly paid and valued employee for Segacious IP.
GIIP as the name suggests it is truly dedicated to what it stands for – Global Institute of Intellectual Property. GIIP has been providing and has provided me world class knowledge about Intellectual Property. The faculties and mentors give a global level and uniform knowledge of IPRs and especially they made me aware about what IP exactly means. I joined GIIP with a lot of expectations and trust me they all were fulfilled completely.
There are a lot of people providing knowledge about Intellectual Property and even many courses related to the same but luckily I found GIIP that provides full time course and mark my words they are the best in business. That is because of Quality Education through World class faculties and mentors. I have learnt a lot about patents and have given almost 10-15 interviews for job but I have always been asked a question from the interviewer that where did you learn about IPRs from and more specifically patents. I can proudly say GIIP.

It’s been 9 years since I am working for an industry where knowledge and discipline towards a profession is an essence. I extend my heartfelt thanks to GIIP and our mentors for their valuable guidance and support.
In true sense, all programs at GIIP are developed in such a way that it bridges academic knowledge and practical skills with several case studies, live projects and valuable guidance from the distinguished faculties.
It was a precious certification! Thank you for developing such an informative and engaging course. Lastly, I am thankful for the ways GIIP supported me during the early stage of my career.
On passing out of GIIP program
First of all, I would like to inform you about my new job at GEIPER, Noida Area, India as Research Intern.
Very rarely do we acknowledge the role of people who shape us, mould us and help us to find ourselves in that process.
Today, as I stand holding my head held high, I cannot help but bow down to the teacher who has made me what I am. I would like to sincerely thank you for all the efforts and the patience you have shown in transforming me from an [aimless student] into a responsible and focused person.
I shall always remain grateful for all the things I have learnt from you, be it the subject you taught or about life in general.
If there is ever anything I can do for you, it will indeed be a great honor for me.
With sincere thanks for everything.

SWATI BURDE(B-Pharmacy, Post Graduate Diploma, 2009 – 2010 batch)
GIIP has been fortunate enough to play a vital role in transforming the carriers of professionals who were not satisfied with their jobs and wanted to do something new and exciting. Ms. Sugandha Chopra who joined our Post Graduate Diploma Program after having a work experience of 4.5 years. Ms. Sugandha was working with Glocon KPO Solutions from 4.5 years when she finally started looking for other carrier options which would give her better job satisfaction and boost her carrier both financially and future growth wise. While searching for upcoming carrier options she read about Intellectual Property and Patents as one of the promising carrier option in India. To her surprise only one dependable name in India was linked to IP and Patents and that was GIIP. She approached us to understand the job prospects in this field. She tried to understand the importance of Intellectual Property and Patents in the Indian Markets and also the role of an IP analyst. Our career experts solved all her doubts and she was motivated enough to leave her job and join the 9 month Post Graduate Diploma in Intellectual Property Rights and Patent Management. After completing the diploma program she got a job with Clairvolex, Gugaon with a much better salary package. Sugandha is happy to find new career path and more confident too. Team GIIP Congratulates Ms. Sugandha Chopra for her success and we are looking forward to set more success stories.
SUGANDHA CHOPRA, Post Graduate Diploma Program, 2009-10
Heera Singh Dahiya
In the near future, as and when India becomes a Research and Development hub, more of intellectual property issues will come up. There is very little awareness regarding intellectual property rights. As of yet, majority of individual scientists and most R and D Institutes have very little infrastructure in place to deal with issues pertaining to the protection and/or validation of intellectual property rights.
Furthermore, India also has a very rich and diverse resource in terms of traditional medicines, herbs and other practices which need to be protected in the form of Biodiversity and other patents.
As a scientist I was always aware of this and knew that we need to proactively pursue patent application for indigenous innovations in scientific research and technology.
Personally, I felt a course in intellectual property rights would give me a brief exposure to the various facets of intellectual property and patent laws and would put me in a unique position to fully understand the dual aspects(scientific and legal) of these issues.
The course curriculum at GIIP had been well structured to take care of this.
SWAGATA PURKAYASHTHA(Ph. D in Chemistry/ Biochemistry, MS in Organic Chemistry, Bachelor’s in Chemistry)
First thing that I liked is the training methodology adopted by the mentors which complements the real –life scenarios. Rather than cramming the theory stress was always laid on learning the fundamentals and then applying that knowledge to solve the assignments.
I was particularly impressed with the course material provided to us, which again focuses on the problem solving approach. The books don’t scare you and are very tempting because of their simple and practical approach to the subject.
Needles to say that course content is comprehensive and you get a broader view of the subject matter.
However, what I liked the most is the “case-study” approach used during the class room training. This is where the GIIP’s program stands out. Once finished with the theory we were always made to solve relevant assignments and case studies right there in the class room. There was probably not a single day when we didn’t solve an assignment or didn’t have a go at a case study. Learning by doing has been the hall mark of this program. This personally instilled a lot of confidence into me.
* Class room trainings were always interactive; it was never a one way session. Due to this I was able to solve most of doubts in the class room itself. Credit for this goes to mentors too as they never got irritated with our repeated queries
* A separate module on soft skills (and on computers) in the 1st trimester was also helpful. I would strongly recommend that to be continued in next session as well.
* The physical environment is also very conducive to learning. We had full access to all the resources like web, library books etc.
So I would recommend this program to anyone who is sincere, has a technical bent of mind and is willing to make a long term career in the exciting and fresh field of Intellectual property
SANDEEP BHOLA(MCA, with work experience of 2 years as IT Engineer at CMC Ltd)
As, in today’s scenario In India and globally knowledge based economy is driven everywhere. In near future it has significant growth. By, Intellectual Property Rights one can make sure to protect it. As, India is hub for research & development as it has various resources & best mind to exploit these resources.
So, for this and for the future we have the thorough knowledge of how to protect our intelligence worldwide. By going through this course one can get the full understanding of the usefulness of this course.
This course is designed in a very good manner so, that a student can easily understand from beginning. The faculty is well trained to teach in their respective subject. The course material given to the students is of very helpful to get the detailed knowledge, and the case study given to the students are very beneficial to understand the subject and the library having excellent books relating IP.

One of the questions that I am asked often when I introduce myself is, why and how did I choose a career in Intellectual Property (IP). Perhaps the origins of my interest in IP lie in my interests in new inventions. While at college, I noticed that while my skills in my subject of specialization (Pharmacy) were about average in class, my other skills such as written and oral communication, debating, making presentations, intrapersonal and interpersonal skills etc were substantially better than average. Also, I found that IP is a highly respected and economically viable profession, as compared to engineering and science, pharmacy or sales. All this made me think seriously about a career in IP. I thought that Intellectual Property was the only one in which a degree in science or technology would be a major advantage, and not just an additional paper qualification. Typical choices that were available to me on graduation included further studies in the same subject (M.Pharma.), a job through campus placements (usually in manufacturing), and further studies in management (by appearing for entrance exams). I chose to opt for management. Based on a recommendation from my guide who I worked with on my Master’s thesis (Post 2005 Marketing Strategies for Indian Pharmaceutical Industry), I underwent a training program in basics of IPR. From there I developed interest in IP and decided to pursue a career in IP. And for starting my career in IP I needed a professional training in the domain of IP. So I joined GIIP. There are some fields that require analytical skills, not much specialized knowledge, and minimal training (e.g., software and KPO). Fresh graduates from reputed institutions can easily find high paying jobs in such fields and continue to grow further (just based on their analytical skills or on newly acquired management skills) without investing in acquiring specialized knowledge, however IP is not one of those fields. Without specialized knowledge, one can get a job (even a high paying one) related to IP, but not sustain a career, as the lack of specialized knowledge leads to stagnation in the (initially) high-paying job. The PG Diploma in International Patents and Intellectual Property Services offered me various skills. Some of the requirements to build a sustainable career in IP (particularly patents) include:
* The ability to grasp new technologies and applications quickly
* Excellent written communication skills
* Ability to understand laws, read bare acts and rules and apply them in practical situations
* Interpretation of techno-legal documents
* Thinking and reasoning like a lawyer (which is different from thinking like a scientist or engineer)
* Analytical skills (particularly in patent analytics)
* Reading comprehension (including ability to discriminate between relevant and irrelevant)
* Attention to detail
* Training by an experienced IP professional
* Practical experience to realize and internalize the trainingAmong these requirements, the ones that can make the maximum amount of difference to an IP career are 9 & 10, namely training by an experienced IP professional (Internship) and practical experience to realize and internalize the training(Final Placement). GIIP helped me to further enhance 1 to 8. Also GIIP helped me in 9. I am confident that GIIP will help me in 10 as well. The difficult part is getting that one year experience in that first job with a reputed firm without any relevant job experience.
Thus GIIP helped me a lot in kick starting my career in IP.

The role of intellectual property rights in Today’s Scenario cannot be ignored; it has changed the meaning of Business and development drastically. It has no doubt become the most valued possession and cannot be replaced by any other asset.
Being a graduate in Biotechnology, I am aware of the role of intellectual property rights in this field, it has become one of the biggest IP sectors.
After a detailed research of the various institutes that impart knowledge about intellectual property rights. I found that the Global Institute of Intellectual Property seemed to be the most promising and it turned out to be so. They have equipped me with all the necessary skills that would be required of me in the industry.
The faculty of this institute is highly dedicated towards grooming and sharpening our skills. The study material provided during the course was of great help in understanding the concepts. Ample number of workbooks and assignments were provided in order to better our skills. The faculty has been very dedicated and made sure that each one of us has absorbed what was delivered before going ahead.
They have provided us with the best of the facilities, be it infrastructure or tuitions. They have managed to bring one of the most prominent people in this field to address us and given us an opportunity to interact with them and solve our queries.
The mentoring sessions that were conducted towards the end of this program was of a great help. It gave us a summary of and revision of the entire course in brief and also gave us the opportunity to get the feedback of our work from some of the leading people in the US. It has indeed been a wonderful learning experience in GIIP and I am sure that the skills that I have gained during this course will go a long way.
I herby would like to thank the institute (GIIP) for helping me in getting this opportunity as an intern in Sagacious research.

Good morning. How are you?
I am doing fine. I just want to convey you the message that I got a verbal offer from RK Dewan law firm. I really liked chatting with Dr. Niti Dewan and Dr. Mohan Dewan. They are planning to train me thoroughly in the field of IPR and want me to be an intricate member of their core team. The salary will be 50 K per month and after clearing the patent agent exam, it will be ~ 60K per month. However, for the first 2 months, it will be just a stipend from 25K – 35K. I heard from Bhavya that Mr. Anand from Anand and Anand has also expressed his willingness to interview me and I am really looking forward to the interview as well.
I wish to express my sincere gratitude for your generous help to take the entire burden towards finding a suitable placement for me in IPR. Also special thanks to Bhavya as she was connected with me on a day to day basis during the job hunt and provided me a lot of support.
Received in 2011
I am doing fine at TCS and am enjoying my work here. I would also like to let you know that I passed the Indian Patent Agent Exam 2011.
Thanks very much for allowing me to participate in GIIP’s course, where I learnt immensely and am using that knowledge everyday.

While preparing for the US patent bar exam I was looking out for training program in IP which could help me to lay down the foundation stone of my career in IP. Going through the site of GIIP, looking at the course description and a promising conversation with Mr. Atulya Nath convinced me to join the executive program of GIIP and I must say it was a good decision. The faculty in GIIP and the guest faculty helped us understand the complexities of patent system with real time examples. They helped me to understand the US patent system and in November 2010, I passed my patent bar exam in my first attempt. I would recommend the courses offered by GIIP not only to students from India but also from other countries, who are looking forward to this exciting career.

Dear Mr. Nath,
It gives me immense pleasure on finally becoming a part of this coveted course. It started with initial discussions with Shailesh, a lot of valuable inputs from yourself and of course counselling sessions with Bhavya to finally prepare myself to enter this domain.
Your commitment for a placement assurance for this course makes it really stand out and presents reason enough for working professionals like me to embrace the risk which comes in with leaving a job and switching fields and still feel confident.
I really look forward to making the best out of this specialised course and be able to carve a niche for myself in this challenging domain, with help and support from all of you at GIIP.
