A Copyright registration application is filed along with copies of the work, after which a diary number is issued to the applicant. The Copyright registration application is kept open for the public to raise any objections for a period of 30 days. If no objection is received against the application, the Copyright Registrar registers the work. If any objections are raised, a reply can be sent to the Registrar. The Registrar can grant the Copyright or reject the application on the basis of reply to Copyright objection.
