A geographical indication or GI is a sign or symbol used on products, which have a specific geographical origin & have qualities or a reputation that are due to that origin. In order to function as a GI, a sign should identify a product as originating in a particular place. In India, Darjeeling tea became the first GI-tagged product in 2004-05. Recently, Tirur betel leaf from Kerala has received the GI tag.

What is the importance of a GI tag?

You would have heard about intellectual property rights such as Copyright, Patent or Trademark etc. In the same way, Geographical Indication Tag gives similar rights & protection to the holders. A ‘GI’ right allows those who have the right to use the indication to prevent its use by any third party whose product doesn’t conform to the applicable standards.

Experts say that the mark gives protection to the producer of those genuine products that command premium pricing in domestic and international markets. President of the National Intellectual Property Organisation (NIPO), T C James said, "Once the GI protection is given, no other producer can misuse the name to market similar products. It provides comfort to customers about the authenticity of that product".
