Rasgulla belongs to West Bengal, not Odisha

It's official Rasgulla belongs to West Bengal not Odisha

On Tuesday, West Bengal has finally won the battle over rasgulla or rosogolla after more than two years. "The Act authenticates a product relating to either a geographical location or community or society", said Sanjay Bhattacharya, deputy controller of patents and designs in Kolkata. He started experimenting trying to make a new sweet from 1864.

The Geographical Identification authorities ruled out today that it is Bengal where the popular rosogolla originated.

He added that Rosogolla is origin of West Bengal. "We have not yet applied for the GI tag for Pahal Rasogolla".

West Bengal's Education Minister Partha Chattetjee said, "Odisha unnecessarily raised a dispute over the issue". However, both Indian states, Odisha and Bengal variously claimed that the origination of this sweet dish.

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.

If North Korea is proven to have fired shots through the area, this would constitute a breach of the armistice agreement. The most famous incident was in 1976, when two American army officers were killed by ax-wielding North Korean soldiers.

Veteran stage and screen personality Soumitra Chatterjee said: "Historically, it feels good to know officially that rosogolla was invented in Bengal".

Meanwhile, renowned researchers in the State, however, claimed there is still time for Odisha government to submit its documentary evidence to get the GI tag for Odisha's rasagolla and rasagolla as well.

State Food Processing Minister Abdur Rezzak Mollah expressed his "happiness and relief" and recalled the state had earlier secured the GI tag for "Joynagarer Moa", a mouth-watering winter snack made of puffed rice and palm jaggery. "We are all happy that now we can say with full rights that rosogolla belongs to us".

West Bengal, for its part, cited an elaborate dossier of historical evidence along with K C Das - the sweet chain run by the descendants of sweet maker Nabin Chandra Das, who is said to have invented the rosogolla in 1868. However the strongest contender remains the Mishti Doi (sweet curd) of West Bengal.

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