Jewelry made in Kolkata might get GI tag

City made jewelry will soon bag the GI tag and will be known as Kolkatti, to reflect the geographical region from where they originated. A GI is a name or sign used on certain products that correspond to a specific geographical location or origin, which can be a city, a town or even a region. 

State commerce and industries minister, Amit Mitra, said that the state is preparing a case for GI tag for Kolkata made jewelry, which has a major demand in the Middle East and other markets. So, the next time you buy a jewelry made by Bengal’s craftsmen even in distant USA or Dubai, you will surely know it was born in Kolkata.
