Can I start using the mark after filing or must I wait for registration to use the trade mark?

A person may use a trade mark for his goods or services irrespective of trade mark filing or registration. Use of a trade mark for a certain period of time will enable the person to show acquired distinctiveness that will help in registration of the trade mark. If the trade mark is filed as a proposed to use mark, it must be used within a period of about five years.
