A Provisional Patent application is an interim step on the road to a patent. It is effective because by filing an appropriate provisional patent application a person can market the invention without fear of losing his patent rights, procuring cash to proceed with development and further patent operations. One of the most important legal documents while applying for patent registration is provisional specification or complete specification. To increase the chances of obtaining patent registration, a provision specification can be filed along with a patent application if the applicant feels that the invention has reached a stage wherein it can be disclosed on paper, but has not attained the final stage. A provision specification must contain the title and description of the invention. The description should start from the second page, starting with the field of invention and containing the background of the invention, an object of the invention and statement of the invention. In the provisional specification, claims are not included. Claims are normally included only in the complete specification.
