The famous Kadaknath chicken meat from Jhabua district of Madhya Pradesh has now got a Geographical Indication (GI) tag. The tag denotes that the product comes from a particular geographical area, and often enhances its\u00a0commercial value.\u00a0A Chhattisgarh-based organisation too had sought\u00a0similar recognition for the Kadaknath chickens bred in\u00a0Dantewada district, but Jhabua's claim seems to have\u00a0prevailed. The Gramin Vikas Trust of Krishak Bharati Cooperative\u00a0(KRIBHCO) had sought GI tag for the protein-rich and black\u00a0coloured meat of Kadaknath variety of chicken, which is mainly\u00a0reared in Jhabua.\u00a0As per the information available on the Geographical Indications Registry, India, the application, made in the\u00a0category of "Meat Product, Poultry & Poultry Meat", was\u00a0approved on July 30. Regional Program Manager of KRIBCHO Mahendra Singh\u00a0Rathore confirmed the development.\u00a0The trust had applied for GI tag in 2012 on behalf of\u00a0tribals of Jhabua district who breed the variety.\u00a0Chhattisgarh-based Global Business Incubator Private\u00a0Limited (GBIPL) had also sought GI tag for the chicken breed,\u00a0claiming that the birds are bred uniquely in the state's Dantewada district. When contacted, Dantewada collector Saurabh Kumar\u00a0today said they would not challenge grant of GI tag for\u00a0Kadaknath meat from Jhabua, as they did not look upon this as\u00a0a "commercial dispute".
