Rosogolla Belongs To Bengal, Not Odisha

Rosogolla Belongs To Bengal, Not Odisha

However, West Bengal got the victory as the Chief Minister of West Bengal poured on Twitter with her happiness over the rosogolla win. 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.

Clarifying the row, Chinnaraja G. Naidu, Assistant Registrar of the Geographical Indications Registry, Chennai, said: "The "rasagolla" which is being manufactured within West Bengal and created a brand in the State was given the GI tag".

There was a tussle between West Bengal and Odisha over the invention of Rosgulla for many years.

It has been a long tug of war with both the states locking horns over the origin of the sweet.

The GI tag was primarily developed with the objective of recognising the unique identity connecting different products and places.

The West Bengal government fell back on 19-century history to claim Rosogolla was invented by Nabin Chandra Das, a famous sweetmeat maker, in 1868.

The only indication that it's coming are the mention of the app in the email to press and a now blank page on Nintendo's website. When the Switch console was first released , many seemed confused why it didn't support any video streaming apps.

It was a day of celebration at "Rosogolla Bhawan", the family home of Nabin Chandra Das, the inventor of Rosogolla.

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.

The confectioners of Odisha also organised an exhibition to make people aware about the state's claim over rosogolla.

However this is not the first sweet battle that Bengal has fought.

The Directorate of Food Processing Industry of West Bengal had applied (number 533) on September 8, 2015 seeking the GI status for Banglar Rasogolla.

The Odisha government has said it would continue its battle to get the Geographical Indication (GI) tag for "rasagola", as it calls the iconic sweet. It is believed that Naveen Chandra Das, the famous candies maker of Bengal, invented Rosgulla before the year 1868. "We are all happy that now we can say with full rights that rosogolla belongs to us".
