Geographical Indications

Geographical indications are a visible sign on a product that describes a specific geographical origin depicting the quality or reputation of the product. Geographical indications like patents, copyrights, and trademarks provide primary rights and protection to owners. Darjeeling Tea, Chanderi Saree, Kanjeewaram silk, etc. are some of the geographical indication examples. India Currently has 236 products registered as Geographical Indicators. In 1999 when India became a member state of Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) Agreement, the legislation for the protection of geographical indication was enacted.
