The two states, Bengal and Odisha, had entered the fray to stake their claim on the dessert for far too long.

The Chennai-based GI registration office awarded the GI tag to Bengal thus putting to rest the almost two-year debate between neighbouring states West Bengal and Odisha regarding the place of origin of this sweet sphere.

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

One of the most popular Bengali candies, Rosogolla, has been the bone of contention between West Bengal and Odisha, as the two states have been involved in a legal battle over its origins.

According to a report by News18, the Assistant Registrar of Trade Marks and GI, Chinnaraja G Naidu was quoted saying, "Yes, today Bengal got the GI patent for Rosogolla".

The West Bengal claim was on the basis of historical facts that Bengal is the father of Rosgulla.

GIs are signs used on products that possess qualities or a reputation that are due to that origin.

The controversy over the past several years has now been resolved between the West Bengal and the Odisha Government over its claim on Rosgulla.

"I thank chief minister Mamata Banerjee for her proactive role".

Renowned confectioner Nobin Chandra Das is known to have created Rosogolla in the 1860s.
