India likely to get exclusive rights to sell Basmati in EU.
Sep 14, 2021

India will likely walk away with the sole right to the Geographical Indication (GI) tag for Basmati rice in the European Union (EU) after the deadline for settling the issue with Pakistan expired on September 10, experts have said.
It will give New Delhi exclusive rights to market the fragrant rice in the EU as 'Basmati' rice and deter other countries, mainly Pakistan, from selling the foodgrain as 'Basmati'.
'The current technical circumstances firmly indicate India would emerge victorious in the Basmati GI tag case at the European Commission,' said S Chandrasekaran, a trade analyst and author of the book Basmati Rice: The Natural History Geographical Indication.
