The State MSME Department has pressed the entrepreneurs, manufacturers and producers to protect their innovations, designs and work processes through Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).

Industries need to protect their product innovation for differentiation in the market.

Intellectual property rights like patents, trademark and other designs are meant to provide the distinct identity to the products and protect them from duplication or other illegalities by unscrupulous elements.

The need of the hour was to generate awareness among the SMEs on IPR and its benefits so that they can derive benefits, State MSME Secretary Panchanan Dash said at a two-day workshop on IPR here.

More than 85 partcipants from MSMEs, academics, researchers, etc. attended the workshop organised by National Research Development Corporation (NRDC), New Delhi in collaboration with MSME-DI,  Cuttack. Various issues of intellectual property protection and its management were discussed.

Among others Chairman NRDC Rajendra Dhobal, Director Industries Nityanand Palai, director MSME-DI PK Gupta and assistant director RP Patnaik were present.
