Indian Patent Office has granted registration of the design to the researchers of Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University for developing the design of handicraft chair. The design of the chair was done by two research students Ayesha and Meenu Jakhar under the supervision of Director of Human Resource Management Dr Manju Mehta of the University.

Vice-Chancellor BR Kamboj said that by developing handicraft designs, students will get opportunities to progress further in this field. Kamboj noted that in the last few years, HAU had applied to the Indian Patent, Design, Trademark and Copyright Office to obtain intellectual property rights for 119 innovations.

Director of Human Resource Management Dr Manju Mehta said two panels have been made in the chair, which are on the left and right sides. The right panel can be used to hold tools while drawing or painting and the left panel can be used to hold drawing sheets. Both the panels are foldable which follows the principle of space management. The back support and cushioning seat protects the person from back pain and spinal cord injury. An ergonomic foot rest is provided to improve comfort when sitting for long periods of time.
