Stalin condemns scrapping of Intellectual Property Appellate Board in Chennaitext_fields
Chennai: DMK President M.K. Stalin on Saturday condemned the central government's decision to scrap the Intellectual Property Appellate Board (IPAB) located in Chennai.
In a statement issued here, Stalin said the central government should form public sector enterprises, but the current BJP government is scrapping or selling off the existing organisations.
He said the appellate boards reduce the load on the courts and also render speedy justice.
IPAB deals with intellectual property disputes between corporates and also for deciding on Geographical Indication.
According to Stalin, the BJP government's decision is an injustice done for Tamil Nadu.
