What is service mark (SM) ?
As defined in The Trade Marks Act, 1999, "service" means service of any description which is made available to potential users and includes the provision of services in connection with business of any industrial or commercial matters such as banking, communication, education, financing, insurance, chit funds, real estate, transport, storage, material treatment, processing, supply of electric or other energy, boarding, lodging, entertainment, amusement, construction, repair, conveying of new or information and advertising.

A service mark is a form of trade mark that is used in the sale or adverting of services. The services offered by one business from similar services offered by the other businesses.
Explaining it more elaborately word, name, or symbol that represents a company/firm/individual that provides service or a service provided by a company/firm/individual that differentiates it from the competition and establishes it as unique. The service mark may be legally registered for the exclusive use of that company.
A service mark differs from a trademark in that the mark is used on the advertising of the service rather than on the packaging or delivery of the service, since there is generally no "package" to place the mark on, which is the practice for trademarks. For example, a private carrier can paint its service mark on its vehicles, such as on planes or buses. Personal service providers can place their service marks on their delivery vehicles, such as on the trucks of plumbers or on moving vans. However, if the service deals with communications, it is possible to use a service mark consisting of a sound (a sound trademark) in the process of delivering the service.
