What will be the fate of a removed trademark?

Normally, a removed Mark will be treated as an unregistered trademark, if such Mark is in actual use. But, such removed Mark-Holder will not loose any rights under the Common Law including the status of ‘prior user’. But, the benefits of Registration under the Act could not be enjoyed. A second application may be filed for a removed Mark by claiming the same ‘User’ period mentioned in the earlier removed Mark.
