About GI tag:

  • A GI tag is a sign denoting a specific geographical origin and possesses qualities or a reputation that are due to that origin.
  • GI, a form of intellectual property right (IPR), is distinct from other forms of IPR, as it ascribes the exclusivity to the community in a defined geography, rather than to an individual, as is in the case of trademarks and patents.
  • A GI tag can be issued for agricultural, natural or manufactured goods that have a unique quality, reputation or other characteristics attributable to its geographical origin.
  • Darjeeling tea, Basmati rice, Mysore Silk,  Kanchipuram Silk, Hyderabadi haleem, Nagaland chilli products, etc, sold with the GI tag have premium pricing.
  • APEDA has been carrying out promotional activities to bring unique and GI certified products to the agricultural and processed food products export map of India.
