INDRP basically is a summary procedure to get hold of the IN domain names by the brand/trademark holders and requires a Trademark holder to prove all the three conditions:
(i) the Registrant’s domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a name, trademark or service mark in which the Complainant has rights;
(ii) the Registrant has no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the domain name; and
(iii) the Registrant’s domain name has been registered or is being used in bad faith.

The said INDRP mark # 1000 has been reached in 12 years period since INDRP’s inception in 2006. Initially, there have been very low volume but for the last few years over 100 INDRP cases are being filed every year.
Year 2012 witnessed the most cases – over 150 cases but the demotivating factor could have been the increase in official INDRP fees in 2014 to almost three time. The current INDRP fees is Rs 30000 + GST.
