I have a business idea which will take a year atleast to implement it. Just want to ask if a business idea is patentable or not (In India)?


No, as per Indian patent act, 1970. section 3(k) a mathematical or business methods or a computer program per se or algorithms are not patentable.

  • An actual link to the regulation would make this excellent answer even better.
