1) IIPTA is an Intellectual Property Rights research and education facility of Indian Institute of Patent and Trademark Education and Research Private Limited a subsidiary of Mabbit Communications Private Limited, both of which are a Private Limited company. IIPTA is not a government institution.

2) IIPTA does not have any relation or tie up with the Patent Office of India and does not conducts the patent agent exam but simply prepares aspirants for the patent agent exam.

3) The programs at IIPTA are job and career oriented professional programs and not base degree courses. Without your basic degree, IPR knowledge will do little help to you especially in the case of patent related programs. IIPTA and its programs are thus neither required to be accredited by AICTE or UGC or any such body nor they are. IIPTA's programs are complement knowledge based programs (complementary to your base degrees) which help aspirants open up new job prospects which were not available to them earlier.
