I'm not sure whether you can get a patent for your software. As far as I know, Patents are offered on the ideas ( bioramani may know more about this ) but you can definitely get a copyright for your software program or application. Go through the FAQ on this on Government's Official site: https://www.mit.gov.in/content/faq-copyrights-software-sound-recording-and-broadcasting
How the copyright for software is given?
Suppose, I have created an application using Microsoft's .NET, will my app be eligible for copyright?👎 or I need to use open-source language for my app development??😕
