The application for patent No.197257 was filed on 29.09.1997 in the name of the inventor Mr. Hubert Jacques Francois. Form 6 was then filed on 18.07.2002 and the application was allowed to proceed in the name of the applicant herein. The application was examined and found in order for grant which was published on 03.06.2005. A request under S.78(4) was filed on 02.07.2005 to carry out clerical corrections and amendments. Four amendments were sought for in the complete specifications and the claims. In the impugned order all the four were reversed. The applicant has filed an appeal against the reversal of the three amendments and for some reason the respondent has filed an appeal under the impression that the words “consisting of” has been amended to “comprising of”. To conclude, we allow amendment of the patent specifications as follows: (i) Wherever the word “roller” is found, it shall be amended to “pad”; (ii) The prayer for changing “homogenous solid solution” to “homogenous phase” is rejected; (iii) The prayer for changing the word “weight” to “volume” in the last sentence of Claim 1 and Claim 4 is rejected and (iv) The prayer for amendment of the word “consisting of” to “comprising of” in Claim 1 is rejected. 30. The application for patent is allowed to proceed on the basis of complete specifications found in order for grant on 09.02.2005 with substitution of words “roller” with “pad” which we have found to be a translation error as per para ante. The order of the Controller, therefore, stands modified to that extent. The respondent No. 3 is directed to amend the patent specification and claims accordingly and publish the same. 31. OA/4/2007/PT/DEL is therefore, partially allowed. OA/17/2010/PT/DEL is allowed. No order as to costs.
