Commenting on receiving the award R Rajendran, promoter, Green Chem Herbal Extracts & Formulations said, “I am happy to see the growing intensity of awareness of patents in India. Like we all take care of our property, taking care of intellectual property is also essential. Innovating a new product or a new process or a new use takes lot of energy, time, and money. After investing in this, the end result has to be safe guarded. This is what the Indian Government is identifying now and giving us the security. This gives me lot of confidence in commercialising my products to customers. The customers who are formulating finished products are confident when we give them the exclusive patent rights for selling to consumers. Patent protection and recognition encourages the “brains” to innovate new products, new concepts. This will induce growth in every aspect. The Indian brain is challengingly strong and the Indian innovations will dominate the globe with a strong impact.”
