Workshop held to register Navalgund durries under GI Act

Jan '11
Karnataka State Handloom Development Corporation (KSHDC) has urged the producers of the Navalgund durries to get their products registered under the Geographical Indications (GI) Act, 1999.

The Textile Committee under the Ministry of Textiles, Government of India jointly with the Office of the Development Commissioner (handicrafts) organized a workshop in Hubli to update the Navalgund durries' weavers regarding the geographical indication.

V S Devaraj, Chief Manager of Production at KSHDC revealed that, as the Development Commissioner (handicrafts) under the Ministry of Textiles realized the significance of the craft of weavers engaged in preparing durries, it has registered this product under the GI Act. The GI Act, serves as a segment of the trade-related intellectual property rights agreement, and is a vital tool that shields the uniqueness of the traditional goods.

Registration under the GI Act would distinguish and protect Navalgund durries from fake goods. Conferring of the GI status not only extends legal protection to the goods but also helps in market expansion while earning better returns for the producers. It also makes it possible for the producers of the original goods to initiate legal action against the manufacturers of fake goods, the official stated.
