Classes of Goods and Services in India

A Trademark is a protection given to certain name, symbol or words. So, if any specific symbol or mark is associated with a service, it is known as Service Mark. The whole purpose behind trademark filing is to allow companies and the individuals to indicate the source of their goods and services and to differentiate them from the others available in the industry.
