Rasagolla GI registration West bengal wins Rasagolla GI registration West Bengal Odisha on Rasagolla GI registration Rasagolla origin Kolkata Rasagolla popular kolkata Rasagolla indian express news

The pearly white favorite, while popularly synonymous with Bengal, found itself amid a bitter, cultural tug-of-war in September 2015 when Odisha raised formal objection to West Bengal's Geographical Indication (GI) claim over the sweet that the neighboring state also holds dear to itself.

Sanjay Bhattacharya, deputy controller of patents and designs Kolkata said, "The issue has been settled under the GI Act that authenticates a product relating to either a geographical location or community".

West Bengal's chief minister Mamata Banerjee welcomed the decision saying in a Twitter post it was "sweet news for us all".

"Sweet news for us all".

Bhubaneswar: Odisha government will seek Geographical Indication (GI) registration for 'Odishara Rasagolla, ' as per an official statement from the Chief Minister's office today.

Rosogulla has finally been lapped up by West Bengal and now the argument will finally be laid to rest.

A GI tag is a sort of intellectual property identifier recognising the origin of a product. "We have not yet applied for the GI tag for Pahal Rasogolla".

According to CNN-News18 report, the tussle escalated in June 2015, after Odisha's science and technology minister Pradip Kumar Panigrahi set up committees to chalk out the origin of the dish. Odisha made a claim on September 19 when West Bengal filed an application for the GI tag. While Odisha claims that the sweetmeat originated from the Jagannath Temple in Puri in 12th century, West Bengal says that confectioner Nobin Chandra Das created the sweet in the 1860s.

Now the day of celebration for West Bengal is here after the win over rosogolla origin.

Leading Bengali film hero Prosenjit Chatterjee said beyond Bengal's borders, people equate the state with "mishti doi (sweet yoghurt)" and "rosogolla". They had claimed that Rasagola was invented by Nabin Chandra Das in 1868 and submitted required proof in this regard.
