New Delhi:

The  West Bengal government has decided to observe 'Rosogolla Day' on November 14. The state last year on November 14 had received the GI tag for Bengal's Rosogolla. The GI tag is a sign that identifies a product as originating from a particular place.

Different varieties of rosogollas would be showcased in the stalls of the 'Mishti Hub' (Sweetmeat Hub), set up in one part of the Eco Park in New Town area here, HIDCO Chairman Debasish Sen told PTI.

"We are celebrating the first anniversary of Bengal's Rosogolla getting the GI tag at the 'Mishti hub' in association with sweetmeatmaker associations," said Sen, an additional chief secretary level officer as quoted in a PTI report.

The 'Mishti hub', opened on July 5 this year, is the only of its kind in state where renowned sweet makers, including some of the traditional ones, shared roof.
