Patent Facilitating Centre (PFC) was set up by Department of Science and Technology
under Technology Information Forecasting and Assessment Council (TIFAC) in 1995. Major Indian scientific establishments have in-house facilities to provide patent support to their scientists. However, such facilities are not available to most of academic sector and smaller scientific institutions whether in the Central or the State sector. PFC was created as a single window facility to service this large all India clientele with a smile and “may we help you” approach. This helpful and human approach has helped PFC reach out to remote universities and R&D centers. Scientists thus have a direct and easy access to PFC’s complete coverage.
