Niranjan Hiranandani files suit in HC against daughter for alleged trademark infringement

Niranjan Hiranandani, who is a leading real estate businessman has filed a case in Bombay High Court against his daughter Priya Hiranandani Vandrevala, seeking to intimidate her from using the name ‘Hiranandani’ in her business. The suit has also sought Rs 50 crore damages for alleged infringement of copyright and trademark by ‘Hiranandani Living Pvt Ltd’ promoted by defendant Priya. The suit was filed last week by Niranjan, his brother Surendra and their company Hiranandani Constructions Private Ltd (HCPL).

Justice S J Kathawala has listed the case for further hearing on March 10, 2014. Hiranandani Construction Pvt Ltd is famous in many cities across India such as Pune, Bangalore and Chennai other than Mumbai, and is a well-known brand in the premium segment of the real estate industry. The company has started real estate business ventures in Dubai as well.

Niranjan and others argued that “the defendants are passing off their business/services/activities as those of the plaintiffs” and that this infringement of their trademark had led the plaintiff to suffer irreparable damage and injury. The suit also said that, “The manner in which the defendants have set out using the mark ‘Hiranandani’ is clear evidence of dishonest and fraudulent intentions of the defendants to deceive and confuse the public, consumers and traders.”

A spokesman of Hiranandani Group said that the family is discussing with the other group on the ways to use the Hiranandani brand in the future and are likely to come out with a solution soon.
