Odisha and Bengal have been locked in a bitter fight over the GI registration of rosogolla since 2015

Ending a two and a half years long "sweet" spate with Odisha, West Bengal on Tuesday won the Geographical Identification (GI) fight over one of the most popular candies in India-'Rosogolla'.

The two states got into a fight over rosogolla after Odisha's science and technology minister Pradip Kumar Panigrahi had claimed that the syrupy sweet existed in the state for about 600 years in Puri and known as kheer mohana.

The GI registry - a wing of India's Intellectual Property Office - is a patent name, logo and signage assigned to brand certain products with the designation of a specific geographical location that is its place of origin.

GIs are signs used on products that possess qualities or a reputation that are due to that origin.

Tweeted Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, "Sweet news for us all".

Das's son Krishna Chandra (1869-1934) expanded the business his father set up and is credited with the invention of another popular sweet "rosomalai". One of the most popular and signature candies of India was judged to have been originated in West Bengal and not Odisha. He was trying to come up with a new sweet for a number of years before he came up with it.

Meanwhile, the Mohanty committee's final report in May 2016 quoted many historical Odia texts that were written well before 1868 and contained description of a similar sounding sweet as temple offering.

The GI authorities in Chennai ruled that West Bengal is the origin of the sweet. Fortunately for the sweet as well as for all its lovers West Bengal won the legal battle and was granted the GI or the Geographical Indication status for the sweet. The Mowa is a winter delicacy made of puffed rice and date-palm jaggery with origins in Joynagar, West Bengal. Now West Bengal got the GI status for rasgulla. This GI tag is not for Rasagola in the generic term.

Bengal broke out into celebration mode with news of Rosogolla having made it to the GI.
