Normally the cancellation of a registered trademark is being termed as ‘Rectification of Register’ under the provisions of The TradeMarks Act, 1999.
The following are the grounds for rectification:
- Non-use of the Registered Mark
- Contravention of failure to observe a condition entered on the register
- Entry made in the register without sufficient cause
- Entry wrongly remaining on the register or any error or defect in any entry in the register
