Rule 119

Refusal to recognise as patent agent

If the Controller is of the opinion that any person should not be recognised as a patent agent in respect of any business under the Act as provided in sub-section (1) of section 131 thereof, he shall communicate his reasons to that person and direct him to show cause why he should not refuse to recognise him as such agent, within such time as he may allow, and after considering the reply, if any, of that person and giving hum an opportunity of being heard, the Controller may pass such orders as he may deem fit.
