Earlier, Odisha had moved the geographical indication registry for the GI tag for its own version of Rasagola.
Odisha moved the registry after West Bengal was awarded the geographical indication tag for its 'Banglar Rasagulla' in 2017.
Last year a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was also filed in Odisha High Court seeking geographical indication tag for Odisha's Rasagola.
The managing director of Odisha Small Industries Corporation Limited (OSIC Ltd), in Madhupatna and Utkal Mistanna Byabasayee Samiti Odisha in Bhubaneswar, are the registered proprietors of the GI "Odisha Rasagola" in respect of Food Stuff Rasagola falling in Class - 30.
