Bengal wins GI tag for 'rosogolla', celebrates 'sweet news'
15 November 2017, 12:55 | Austin Hogan
Odisha and Bengal have been locked in a bitter fight over the GI registration of rosogolla since 2015
Rasgulla Originated from West Bengal: There occurs a case for more than two years for the most famous sweet Rasgulla about its origin between West Bengal and Odisha.
With news of Bengal's victory, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who is at present on a tour of London, twitted "Sweet news for us all".
"Sweet news for us all".
However, a state government official said the West Bengal government has got the GI tag for "Banglar Rosogolla", not for "Rasagola" in general.
India, as a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO), enacted the Geographical Indications of Goods in 2003. This means Odisha may continue to lay historical claim to its own form of Rasagola or Kheermohan.
Similarly, the Tamil Nadu Handicrafts Development Corporation had applied (number 426) on May 31, 2013 seeking the GI tag status for Mamallapuram stone sculptures.
As per the reports, From 2015 Odisha and West Bengal indulge into the bitter fight over the GI registration of rosogolla.
The fight had started in 2015 when Odisha made a decision to set up committees to counter West Bengal's claims on the candies. 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.
As per the documents submitted by the West Bengal government, the Rasgulla was invented by sweet maker Nabin Chandra Das in 1868.
However, two years on, and West Bengal can finally claim that the rasgulla is officially theirs.
In 2015, its science and technology minister Pradip Kumar announced the setting up of a committee that would trace the "actual" origin of the sweet. We are all so happy.
State Food Processing Minister Abdur Rezzak Mollah expressed his "happiness and relief" and recalled the state had earlier secured the GI tag for "Joynagarer Moa", a mouth-watering winter snack made of puffed rice and palm jaggery.
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. Darjeeling Tea is the first product of the State to be accorded the GI.
