Geographical Indications

The Geographical Indications of Goods (Registration and Protection) Act, 1999 affords protection to goods that can be identified as originating or manufactured in the territory of a country or a region or locality in that territory where a given quantity, reputation or other characteristic of such goods is essentially attributable to its geographical origin.

As in the case of other Intellectual Property Rights, GIs also involve a spectrum of tasks belonging to various categories like those which are related to registration, advice, opposition and rectification besides counter measures to tackle infringement.
