The NICE Classification was established in 1957 by NICE Agreement, and it divides marks into 45 different classes by Goods and Services (Classes 1-34 for Goods and Classes 35-45 for Services). The purpose of these classifications is to allow users to seek to trademark a goods or services into classes most appropriate to their business.
TM Class 24 includes textiles and textile goods, not included in other classes, bed covers, table covers, and textiles (piece goods) and textile covers for household use.
You would not use Trademark Class 24 if you were registering for:
A related trademark class is one that is related to another class; this is due to the Indian Trademark Office (ITO) has determined that applicants registering within Class 24 may register in these other classes too.
If you are not sure while choosing Class 24 for your product, you also consider the following “Related Classes”: Class 25- Clothing, Class 23- Yarns and Threads, Class 26- Lace and Embroidery, Class 42- Science and Technology Services and Class 35- Advertising and Business Services.
Example: KAYA registered under Class 24.
Trademark Registration fees also vary on bases of the Class system. You must pay a separate registration fee for each class of goods and services that you want to register. For instance, if you are going to register a trademark for Chemicals in Class 1 and Rubber in Class 17, you should pay two separate fees.
It is necessary to choose the correct class at the time of registering a trademark, if you register a trademark in the wrong class, you must start the registration process from the beginning.
