Every state has its own items with GI Tags. Karnataka, on the other hand, has the most GI Tags in India. Karnataka has the most registrations with 48 items, which speaks volumes about the quality and heritage of the products it crops, manufactures, and generates. Furthermore, with more GI tags, the state can highlight and recognize the uniqueness of its various towns and cities. The GI label is also a status symbol that enhances seller and manufacturer morale and commercial viability.
Purpose behind GI Tag of Karnataka
Karnataka’s massive number of GI tags undoubtedly aids in the state’s sustained distinctiveness. It supports biodiversity while promoting local culture and cuisine, in addition to aiding in the preservation of historical landmarks. There are a tonne of tags for products like tur dal and betel nuts from Uttar Kannada that are awaiting approval, which will increase the total number of tags for the state.
Karnataka GI tags act more like a status that grants a region ownership of its goods. Additionally, it guarantees the product’s quality and gives the manufacturers the advantage of being able to sell their goods in the market for higher prices. In the end, it’s all about exclusivity and the government agency, in this case the Indian Patent Office, acknowledging the product’s provenance.
South Indian states have led the list of the 301 items registered with the Indian Patent Office from April 2004. Karnataka has been leading the way in getting the maximum success rates of approval of 11, whether it be in Kerala, Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, or any other state, during the previous 12 years.
