Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced the development on Twitter, calling it "sweet news for us all".

Bengal and Odisha have been locked in a bitter fight over the GI registration of rosgulla since 2015. Based on this, Odisha had initiated its own GI claim previous year on "Pahala Rasgulla", in reference to a small highway-stop village between Bhubaneshwar and Cuttack, named Pahala with end-to-end sweet shops along a long stretch, which produce Odisha's variant of Rasgullas. The Bhawan is located at Rabindra Sarani, Bagbazar in North Kolkata.

"Nobin Chandra Das invented the sweet in 1868".

Food processing Minister of the state, Abdur Rezzak Mollah talking to media said, "Happy and relieved". This GI tag is not for Rasagola in the generic term. The size of the mouth watering, spongy, white or half white syrupy dessert made of pure chhana dumpings varies from 3.7 to 6.2 cm and is in a ball like shape, says the description. People of Bengal who are known to take their candies very seriously made a beeline for the sweet shops specially KC Das to renew their sweet affair with this iconic sweet. A GI tag means that Rasgulla from only a specific place has been recognised, and Odisha may argue that this has no bearing on history of the Rasgola - formerly Kheermohan - that has apparently been served up as a divine offering for centuries.

In the list are Chana Bora of Baharampur, Murshidabad; Kheeerer Pantuwa of Katwa of East Burdwan along with Pantua and Kancha Golla of Ranaghat, Nadia district. The GI tag was finally conferred on Tuesday.
