West Bengal Wins The Battle For Rosogolla

The Odisha government on Tuesday said it would continue its battle to get the Geographical Indication (GI) tag for "rasagola" even though West Bengal obtained the GI tag for the origin of the iconic sweet, called "rosogolla" in that state. He was trying to come up with a new sweet for a number of years before he came up with it , As Reported By Hindustan Times.

In the backdrop of a statewide cry over West Bengal getting the GI tag for rasagolla, Odisha Finance Minister Sashibhusan Behera said: "Where is the question of winning or defeating?"

"Odisha and its coastal towns have forever been attractions for tourists from Bengal". 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.

Bengal broke out into celebration mode with news of Rosogolla having made it to the GI. There are several evidences that the sweet dish originated in Odisha and not in West Bengal, said researcher on Jagannath Cult Asit Mohanty, who had submitted the report to the then Science and Technology Minister Pradeep Panigrahy in July past year.

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

The Odisha government was in the process of obtaining a GI status for the "Odishara Rasagolla", the origin of which dates back to more than 800 years, it said.

Food processing Minister of the state, Abdur Rezzak Mollah talking to media said, "Happy and relieved".

Countering Odisha's claim, the Bengal government applied for GI tag from the GI registry in Chennai, asserting there was "ample" documentary evidence to prove the sweet belongs to Bengal and was invented by famous sweetmeat maker Nabin Chandra Das in 1868. "We are all happy that now we can say with full rights that rosogolla belongs to us". GI is a tag which recognises a state as the origin of a product. He had stated that there is conclusive evidence that Rosogolla has existed in the state for about 600 years.
