Ayurveda, an ancient system of medicine rooted in India's cultural heritage, has become increasingly relevant in modern times. The traditional knowledge of Ayurveda offers valuable insights and remedies that continue to be applicable today. However, with the rise in the commercialization of traditional knowledge, there is a growing interest in patenting Ayurveda-related inventions. This article explores the Indian patent law procedures, the implications of patenting Ayurveda-related inventions, and the legal landscape surrounding intellectual property (IP) litigation in India. The article begins by stating the general procedure for patent and also documents the relevance of traditional knowledge guidelines for patenting Ayurveda related invention. The article then draws patent applications related to ayurveda as a sample for analysing the patent procedure.
