GI Tagged Products in Bihar
GI Tagged Products in Bihar

In this article, I am listing out all the GI Tagged Products in Bihar.

GI stands for Geographical Indication.

Geographical Indication is a sign or tag given to a product based on its Geographical Origin, Quality, and Reputation.

The main motive behind giving a Geographical Indication Tag is to prevent the unauthorized use of a registered GI Tag product by others.

In India, the GI tags are issued under the Geographical Indications of Goods (Registration and Protection) Act 1999.

Do you know who is giving the GI Tags to products in India?

The Department of Industry Promotion and Internal Trade that falls under the Ministry of Commerce and Industry is giving this tag to an Individual or a Group based on the uniqueness of the product in a given Geographical Region.

Here, we are going to talk about the products that have got the GI tags in Bihar.
