West Bengal wins the fight for Rosogolla, gets the GI tag
15 November 2017, 12:53 | Lionel James
Odisha and Bengal have been locked in a bitter fight over the GI registration of rosogolla since 2015
West Bengal's long, bitter friction with Odisha over the Rosogulla sweet came to an end today after the Geographical Identification (GI) tag authenticated the sweet to have roots in Bengal. "We are very happy and proud that #Bengal has been granted GI status for rosogolla", West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee wrote on Twitter after the news broke.
India, as a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO), enacted the Geographical Indications of Goods in 2003. Both state governments had formed various committees to find and collect relevant evidence so that they can stake their claim to the highly popular sweet Rasgulla. Darjeeling tea, for instance, has a GI tag for the tea produced exclusively in Darjeeling's tea gardens, as does Champagne for a specific bubbly produced in Champagne, France - all the rest simply being "Sparkling Wines".
More importantly, the GI Registrar office at Chennai told The New Indian Express that Odisha has not so far applied for any GI tag. Abdur Rezzak Mollah, Food Processing Minister stated "Earlier we had fought a similar battle with other states over the GI of Joynogorer Mowa".
West Bengal, for its part, cited an elaborate dossier of historical evidence along with K C Das - the sweet chain run by the descendants of sweet maker Nabin Chandra Das, who is said to have invented the rosogolla in 1868.

The two states got into a fight over rosogolla after Odisha's science and technology minister Pradip Kumar Panigrahi had claimed that the syrupy sweet existed in the state for about 600 years in Puri and known as kheer mohana.
In the list are Chana Bora of Baharampur, Murshidabad; Kheeerer Pantuwa of Katwa of East Burdwan along with Pantua and Kancha Golla of Ranaghat, Nadia district.
A GI tag is a sort of intellectual property identifier recognising the origin of a product.
