    Indian Patent Office functions from four locations viz. Kolkata, Delhi, Chennai and Mumbai.Application for Patent shall be filed with the Patent Office having the appropriate jurisdiction.

    A US patent is granted by the United State Patent Office to an inventor, who has filed his application with it, whereas an Indian Patent is granted by the Indian Patent Office to an inventor, who has filed his application with Indian Patent office.  

    A patent granted by a patent office is applicable within the geographical  boundaries of that country only. 

    A US Patent is applicable within USA only and has no effect in India, if the same inventor of the US patent has not filed his application in India for the patent grant.
