The High Court (HC) today ordered authorities concerned to submit list of products already registered as Geographical Indications (GI) and those required to be registered in home and abroad.

The court also issued a rule asking officials concerned including industries, the commerce secretary, agriculture secretary and cultural affairs secretary to explain in four weeks as to why it shall not declare their failure in preparing the list and register the GI products as illegal.

It set March 19 for submitting compliance report in this regard.
