While Bengal's CM Mamata Banerjee has presented the sweet meat as a cultural ambassador of the state, the Odisha state government in 2015, launched a social media campaign #RasagollaDibasa along with an exhibition to celebrate the sweet and in 2016 celebrated Rosogolla Divas.
Odisha had claimed that the sweet originated in the Jagannath Temple of Puri and has been around since the 12th century.
The sweet, dipped in sugary syrup, which is a favourite across the country, has for always been at the centre of a bitter tussle between the two States, with each claiming it as their invention.
Bengal and Odisha have been locked in a bitter fight over the GI registration of rosgulla since 2015.
However, Odisha had claimed that 600 years ago they had Rosgulla.
The first committee would look into facts and evidence regarding the origin of Rasgulla in Odisha, the second would study the ground, based on which West Bengal is making its claim.
The GI authorities on Tuesday however said rosogolla originated in West Bengal.
West Bengal in its application had provided proof of origin - historical records dating back to 1896.
"Sweet news for us all".
On Tuesday morning, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee posted a tweet which not only left Odias in a tizzy but nearly broke the Internet in the eastern part of the country. We are all so happy. Abdur Rezzak Mollah, food processing minister in Banerjee's cabinet, told Hindustan Times that he was "happy and relieved".
The two states, Bengal and Odisha, had entered the fray to stake their claim on the dessert for far too long.
The same thing was also stated by another official from GI Registry in order to make the matter clear for one and all. 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.
