Can I get protection if I invent something new but dependent on the old one?

There is a provision for registration of a patent of addition, if it is an improvement of your own invention and the protection will be granted for the unexpired period of the main patent. If it is an improvement of somebody else's invention, you can obtain a dependent patent, as far as that improvement is patentable.
