Rosogolla originated in West Bengal not Odisha stamps Geographical Indication

But two eastern states, West Bengal and Odisha, have been arguing over the origins of rosogolla, which means a ball of sweet. As reported by Hindustan Times, Sanjay Bhattacharya, deputy controller of patents and designs in Kolkata, said, "It has been settled under the GI Act that authenticates a product relating to either a geographical location or community or society".

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee celebrated the news with a tweet saying: "Sweet news for us all".
