Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman launched a logo of a cell for the IPR Promotion and Management (CIPAM) on Wednesday.

She termed this as "an ambitious task" as India's related activities need great traction.

The logo has been designed by the Institute of Design, while keeping in mind the country's slogan for its IPR policy focsuing on innovation and creativity.

Speaking on the occasion, Ramesh Abhishek, Secretary at the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), said the mandate of CIPAM is to efficiently implement the IPR policy. He said it is coordinating IPR awareness programmes in the country.

CIPAM has been created as a professional body under the aegis of DIPP to take forward the implementation of the National IPR Policy that was approved by the government in May 2016.

CIPAM is working towards creating public awareness about IPRs in the country, promoting filing of IPRs through facilitation and providing inventors with a platform to commercialise their IP assets.
