West Bengal on 14th November 2017 won the long bitter battle over Rosgulla as Geographical Indications (GI), a Chennai-based Registry announced that one of India's signature candies originated in the state and not Odisha.

Today, the Geographical Indications Registry announced that the "Rosogulla", unanimous with the Bengali identity, has its roots in West Bengal and not in Odisha.

But two eastern states, West Bengal and Odisha, have been arguing over the origins of rosogolla, which means a ball of sweet. "We are very happy and proud that #Bengal has been granted GI. status for Rosogolla", Banerjee tweeted.

Odisha has been claiming that Rasagola originated in the state and it was offered at Sri Jagannath Temple as well. However, writing about this news has definitely made our mouths water for the delectable sweet and we're sure you're going to visit your local sweet shop for some mouth watering rosogullas soon, isn't it? Finally success came in the form of the Rosogolla in 1868. West Bengal was involved in a lengthy battle with Odisha, which too had claimed Rasogolla as its invention. We are all so happy.

The GI authorities in Chennai ruled that West Bengal is the origin of the sweet.

The GI tag conveys an assurance of quality and distinctiveness which is essentially attributable to the fact of its origin in a defined geographical locality, region or country.
