HNS/Imphal, Apr 26: Three Manipuri textile products namely Dhaphee Lanphee, Wangkhei Phee and Moirang Phee were among 14 new items unique to various States of India which have been given the Geological Indications (GI) tag on the occasion of celebrating Intellectual Property Rights Day. The other items included Kannauj perfume, Kanpur saddlery, Moradabad metal craft, Saharanpur wood craft, Dharmavaram handloom pattu sarees and paavadas, Warli painting, Kolhapur jaggery, Kangra painting, Nagpur orange and Thewa artwork. GI tag is awarded to products that are unique to a particular region, if it is scientifically proved with evidence that the product acquires the uniqueness only due to the geographical location coupled with traditional knowledge which goes into the making of the product. Justifying the need for a special statute to protect products unique to certain regions, the GI Act said: "Each reputation was carefully built up and painstakingly maintained by the masters of that region, combining the best of Nature and Man, traditionally handed over from one generation to the next for centuries. Gradually, a specific link between the goods and place of production evolved resulting in growth of geographical indications." It may be noted here that the first GI tag was granted to Darjeeling Tea about a decade ago, and the tally now is 215, with at least 100 more waiting in the pipeline. At a World IPR Day function organized by the IPR Attorneys Association at Chennai, IPR Attorneys Association president and advocate P Sanjai Gandhi also announced that from the next year onwards the Association would confer Indian IPR Awards on three deserving candidates chosen from the fields of Science, Industry and Arts.

CHENNAI: Oranges of Nagpur, paintings of Kangra, Moradabad metal craft and Kolhapur jaggery are among 14 items waiting for Geographical Indications (GI) tag.

Once conferred, the uniqueness of these products will be statutorily insulated from false claimants trying to exploit their regional exclusivity. Already 195 items including Kancheepuram silk and Darjeeling tea from various states enjoy the protection.

"The national GI Registry here has advertised these 14 products in its issues dated November 28 and 29. If no objections are received within the next 40 days, the registry would grant GI tag to them," Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) attorney P Sanjay Gandhi told TOI.
