25. Removal of trade mark from register.

The court may, on the application of any person aggrieved, remove any trade mark from the register on the ground, after the expiration of five years from the date of the registration thereof, that the registered proprietor is not engaged in any business concerned in the goods with respect to which the trade mark is registered.

26. Opposition to alteration of register.

Any person may send, with the prescribed fee, notice to the Registrar through an agent with an address in the State of his or her desire to oppose the registration of any assignee or transmittee, or any alteration of the register, and in every such case the proceedings shall be the same as in the case of a notice of opposition to the original registration of a trade mark.

27. Publication of alteration of register.

Whenever the register is rectified or altered in any particular in respect to any trade mark, the Registrar shall, if he or she thinks that such rectification or alteration should be

In any case in which any person is required under the Marks, Collective Marks and Trade Names Act or these rules to make a declaration on behalf of himself or herself or of any body corporate, or any evidence is required to be produced to the Registrar, the Registrar, if satisfied that from any reasonable cause such person is unable to make the declaration or that such evidence may be dispensed with, may, upon the production of such other declaration or evidence, and subject to such terms as he or she may think fit, dispense with any such declaration or evidence.
