Geographical Indication Registry office issued a show-cause notice to the Bengal government.

Chennai:16/3/18; In ongoing war between Odisha and neighbouring State West Bengal over GI status to Rasagola, a show-cause notice was served to the Bengal government.

The Geographical Indication (GI) Registry office issued the notice to the West Bengal State Food Processing & Horticulture Development Corporation asking it why the GI tag given to ‘Banglar Rasogolla’ will not be withdrawn.

The notice was served following an application for rectification or removal was filed by the Regional Development Trust chairman Ramesh Chandra Sahoo a month ago at GI’s Chhenai office.

The Bhubaneswar-based Trust alleged that West Bengal had received the GI status for ‘Banglar Rasogolla’ from GI Registry office by furnishing false evidence and data.

While West Bengal State Food Processing & Horticulture Development Corporation applied for GI status, Odisha was not given opportunity to clear its stand.

Sahoo filed a petition objecting GI status to ‘Banglar Rasogolla’ bagged by West Bengal government four months ago. He also questioned on the data and documents provided by the neighbouring state for getting GI tag for Rasagola.
