In cases wherein the Trade Mark Registrar raises an objection for registration of a trademark, the applicant has an opportunity to submit a written reply to the objection raised. The reply to the Trademark Examination Report should contain reasons, facts, and evidence as to why the mark should be registered in favour of the applicant along with supporting evidence if any. If the Trademark Examiner finds the reply sufficient and addresses all the concerns raised by him/her in the Examination Report, the application would be allowed to be published in the Trademark Journal, before registration.
