GI Tags list of 2019

Geographical indication (GI) is a name or sign used on certain products which corresponds to a specific geographical location or origin (e.g. a town, region, or country).

Approved by the Geneva-headquartered World Trade Organization, a GI tag recognized the place of origin of a product and the specific qualities or means of production associated with it. GI Tag acts as a certificate and it is a way of ensuring that similar products from elsewhere cannot be sold under this name.

A GI Tag is valid for a decade, after which it can be renewed for another 10 years. In India, the GI tag is governed by the Geographical Indication of Goods (Registration and Protection) Act which came into being in 1999.
