A patent is a right granted to an inventor by the federal government that permits the inventor to exclude others from making, selling or using the invention for a period of time. The patent system is designed to encourage inventions that are unique and useful to society. Congress was given the power to grant patents in the Constitution, and federal statutes and rules govern patents.
It is the inventor who has the right to apply for a patent for an invention. However, the right to apply for a patent can be transferred to another person - physically or legally (assignment)
Following is the procedure to secure your patent with patent registration:
An invention made by you should not be published anywhere in India prior to the date of filing the patent application. Your invention must have the capability to be used in the industries. It is also important that the invention should not be obvious in nature and is fully considered by the skilled and professional person.
