Kashmiri saffron gets GI certification

Grown in Pampore, south of Srinagar, Kashmiri saffron is said to be the best and finest. The GI certification will prevent adulteration of the saffron. A Geographical Indication (GI) tag is a sign used for products that can be identified with a specific geographical origin.

NEW DELHI, July 26: The Central Government on Saturday issued a certificate of GI (Geographical Indication) registration for the saffron grown in Kashmir Valley. The GI certification will prevent adulteration of the Kashmir saffron, it is claimed.

Saffron is commercially grown in Pampore, south of Srinagar. In quality, Kashmiri saffron is said to be the best and finest. Under the National Mission on Saffron (NMS), Rs 411 crore was recently approved by the Centre to develop an area of 3,715 hectares for saffron.

A Geographical Indication (GI) tag is a sign used for products that can be identified with a specific geographical origin. Its qualities are also attributable to the place. An example is Odisha getting the GI tag for its own version of the Rasagola.

The purpose of registering a geographic indication is to seek protection for specific products produced in a particular geographic region.

India had a couple of years ago unveiled a tagline and a tricolour logo for Geographical Indication (GI)-certified products.
