Kerala’s Nilambur Teak set to be inducted in the List of Products with GI tag

Kerala’s Nilambur Teak set to be inducted(शामिल)  in the List of Products with GI tag
The famous Nilambur teak which is internationally known for its superior quality and elegant  (सुरुचिपूर्ण) appearance is soon to get added to the list of the Kerala produces that have Geographical (भौगोलिक) Indication(चिह्न) (GI) tag.  Apart from having aesthetic appearance, the Nilambur teak has
superior mechanical and physical properties. It was identified by the Britishers from Nilambur plantations and forests.
As the Nilambur teak became famous worldwide, fake(नकली)  products with false tags started flooding (बाढ़) the wood and furniture markets. So in order to protect the legal rights of the teak, it has been decided by the concerned authorities to register the unique product as a Geographical Indication under the GI Act. iv .The effort to obtain the GI status for Nilambur teak variety was taken by the IPR (Intellectual Property Rights) Cell of the Kerala Agricultural University (KAU) with the support of the Nilambur Teak Heritage Society, the Kerala Forest Research Institute (KFRI) and the Department of Forests.
The Pokkali rice was one of the first Kerala produces to get the GI tag. Other Kerala products with GI registration include Vazhakulam Pineapple, Wayanadan rice varieties Jeerakasala and Gandhakasala, Tirur Betel vine, Central Travancore Jaggery and Chengalikodan Nendran, a banana variety.
