  • In India, the Geographical Indications of Goods (Registration and Protection) Act,1999 provides for the registration and better protection of geographical indications relating to goods.
  • Darjeeling Tea was the first product to receive a GI tag in India in 2004.

  • According to the World Intellectual property Organization, a geographical indication (GI) is a sign used on products that have a specific geographical origin and possess qualities or a reputation that is due to that origin.
    • In order to function as a GI, a sign must identify a product as originating in a given place.
    • Also, the qualities, characteristics, or reputation of the product should be essentially due to the place of origin.
    • Since the qualities depend on the geographical place of production, there is a clear link between the product and its original place of production.
