Black Rice of Manipur has got GI tag.

Banarasi Sarees, Kanjeevaram Sarees, Mathura’s Peda, Agra’s Petha, Darjeeling tea, are very popular in India with these names, every shopkeeper wants to sell their products with these names, and it is called Geographical Indication (GI) tag. So far, about 624 products in India have received GI tag.

What is Geographical Indication?

Geographical indications are a name or mark like “logo” that gives specific recognition to an agricultural product, natural and manufactured products (sweets, handicrafts and industrial goods). This tag is given to products of special quality and identity (which originate in a specific geographical area). No one is allowed to use this name except for any region (country, state and town) which is given this tag.

Who issues GI in India?

This tag is issued under the Geographical Indication of Goods (Registration and Protection) Act, 1999. This tag is given by the Geographical Indication Registry by the Department of Industry Promotion and Internal Trade, Ministry of Commerce and Industry. It takes about a year to get this GI tag.

If someone’s claim is not up to the facts then the application is also canceled. GI tag is not given to any product for lifetime, as per the rule it is given for 10 years. After this period one has to apply again to get it. The first GI tag in India was given to Darjeeling tea in 2004 which is related to West Bengal. The second GI tag was then given to Aranmula Kannadi (Handicraft, which is a mirror and made in Kerala).

Black Rice of Manipur has been given Geographical Indication (GI) tag:

Recently Black Rice of Manipur has been given Geographical Indication (GI) tag, this means that no producer in Punjab can now claim that it has produced Black Rice, that is, now Black Rice becomes the identity of Manipur has gone. One of its biggest advantages will be that now the farmers of Manipur will be able to produce it in large quantities as well as by exporting it in the world, they will also get less in income.
