The commerce and industry ministry today said it is organising a series of workshops to strengthen the enforcement mechanism of intellectual property rights (IPRs).
These workshops are designed in a manner to ensure that the police officials understand and realise the importance of their role in effective enforcement of IPRs, the ministry said in a statement.
To ensure effective participation of police officials, various interactive activities like quizzes, skit, IP videos, and case studies are made part of the workshops.
In the recent past, multiple workshops have been organised by CIPAM in states such as Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal.
A similar programme has been conducted at North Eastern Police Academy, where officials from nine states participated.
The ministry said that IPRs have now been made part of the training calendar of police and "more such programmes are in the pipeline".
Further, CIPAM has also prepared an IPR enforcement toolkit for the police.
