What is a Geographical Indication (GI)Tag?

A GI tag is a sign used on products that have a specific geographical origin and possess origin-based qualities and reputation in the region.

Keep in mind that the characteristics, qualities, and popularity of the product should be essentially due to the place of origin. 

Geographical indications tags are given to foodstuffs, handicrafts, industrial products, wine and spirit drinks, and agricultural products.

Who issues GI Tag in India?

The GI tags are given as per the Geographical Indications of Goods (Registration and Protection) Act,1999. GI tags are issued by the Geographical Indication Registry under the Department of Industry Promotion and Internal Trade, Ministry of Commerce and Industry.

The GI Tag right enables the right holders to use the indication to prevent its use by a third party whose product does not belong to the particular region and doesn't have the required quality and standards.

Worth to mention that, a protected geographical indication does not enable the right holder to prevent someone from making a product using the same techniques as used by the right holder.

Darjeeling tea was the first product that got GI tag in 2004–05 in India, since then 365 goods had been added to the list as of May 2020. Recently Kashmir saffron and black rice Manipur got this GI tag.
