"Odisha to demand GI tag for "Odisha Rasagolla" and the GI tag given to "Banglar Rosgolla" is specific to West Bengal", the CMO's statement added.
It has been a long tug of war with both the states locking horns over the origin of the sweet. The state too applied for a GI tag for the sweet. According to reports, Rasgulla or Rosogolla was originated in east Indian state of Odisha.
The government termed West Bengal winning the GI tag on "rasagola" an "injustice to Odisha" as the sweet is rooted in Jagannath culture.
The Odisha government set up three committees to look into the evidence regarding the origin of rosogolla in Odisha and its Science and Technology Minister Pradip Kumar Panigrahi claimed that more than one committee had pointed to "conclusive evidence" that "rasagola" (as the sweet is spelt in that state) was first made in Pahelgram close to Bhubaneswar.
However, Odisha had claimed that 600 years ago they had Rosgulla.
West Bengal in its application had provided proof of origin - historical records dating back to 1896. We are all so happy.
As per the documents submitted by the West Bengal government, the Rasgulla was invented by sweet maker Nabin Chandra Das in 1868.
In the list are Chana Bora of Baharampur, Murshidabad; Kheeerer Pantuwa of Katwa of East Burdwan along with Pantua and Kancha Golla of Ranaghat, Nadia district. A GI tag certifies a region as the source of origin of a food product, guaranteeing a certain standard or authenticity.
