4 April 2023: Geographical Indication Tag for Nagri Dubraj Rice

Context:

The Geographical Indication Registry (GI) put a mark on the rice Nagri Dubraj from Chhattisgarh because of its unique smell.
The moniker has also been applied to the Madhya Pradesh-grown Morena and Rewa mangoes.

Nagri Dubraj Rice

  • It was created by a women’s self-help organization. Dubraj has been harvested by the women’s self-help organization “Maa Durga Swasahayata Samuh” of Nagri in the Dhamtari region.
  • It is an indigenous variety with small grains that, when cooked, are extremely soft to consume and are referred to as the Chhattisgarh Basmati because of their fragrance.

GI Tag 

  • The GI (geographic indication) tag shows that a product comes from a specific place or has characteristics that can be traced back to a certain area.
  • A GI is mainly a manufactured product (handicrafts and industrial goods), an agricultural product, or a natural product that comes from a specific geographic region.
  • The Geographical Indications of Goods (Registration and Protection) Act of 1999 says who can get GI badges and how they should be used.
  • The Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property, which sets rules for intellectual property rights, covers it.
  • This tag can be renewed after its initial 10-year validity term.

Advantages of Obtaining a GI Tag

    stops others from using a registered geographical indication without permission.
  • Geographical markers used in India are given legal protection, which increases exports.
    It supports the monetary well-being of manufacturers of products made in a specific area.
