UP Govt to set up board for promoting GI products

The Uttar Pradesh government will set up a state-level board for resolving problems of producers of GI (geographical indication) products in a holistic manner and promoting export of all such local products.

Lucknow, UP

The
board would be set up under the chief secretary
Rajendra Kumar Tiwari to promote export of the products
through branding and marketing.

The
main function of the proposed board would be to chalk out strategy for
development of GI products and issue necessary guidelines for the execution of
the same. Geographical Indication (GI) is a sign used on products that have a
specific geographical origin and possesses qualities or a reputation that are
due to that origin. The products include handicrafts, wooden toys, stone
carving, textile, and handloom products. The board will also develop a
mechanism to identify new potential products for GI registration, their
documentation, setting up producers’ groups, and quality control of current GI
products.

 

The
proposed board will have a maximum of three representatives on a rotation basis
from various fields like industries and internal trade, MSME and export
promotion, agriculture, horticulture and food processing, handicraft, textile,
directorate of industries, export promotion bureau, foreign trade, GI Registry
(Chennai), textile committee (Mumbai) and National Bank for Agriculture and
Rural Development (
NABARD).

 

The CS directed officials to complete the
ongoing work with regards to developing a mechanism for bar-coding of GI
products by the end of current month.
