      24 C(5) Provided that a request for expedited examination under this rule filed by a startup
      shall not be questioned merely on the ground that the startup ceased to be a startup after
      having filed an application for patent due to the lapse of more than five years from the date
      of its incorporation or registration, or the turnover subsequently crossed the financial
      threshold limit, as defined.

      As per new startup definition, won’t it be seven years? pls. confirm

      Yes, according to the new definition, a start-up is an entity as recognised by a competent authority. So, all the clauses relating to start-up should be interpreted according to the new definition.
