The Geographical Indications Registry today announced that the Rosogolla or rasgulla, unanimous with the Bengali identity, originated in West Bengal and not Odisha.
What is GI Tag?
A GI tag is a sort of intellectual property identifier recognising the origin of a product.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee celebrated the news on twitter.
Sweet news for us all. We are very happy and proud that #Bengal has been granted GI ( Geographical Indication) status for Rosogolla

Odisha and Bengal got into bitter fight over the GI registration of rosogolla since 2015.
