To mark 150 years of its creation

A postage stamp and special cover were released here on Friday to mark 150 years of the invention of ‘Bengal’s Rossogolla’ by Nabin Chandra Das.

Mayor of Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) Firhad Hakim, who released them along with J. Charukeshi, Post Master General, Kolkata Region, referred to the long dispute between Odisha and West Bengal over Rosogolla. After years of contesting claims, the Geographical Identification tag for “Bengal Rosogolla” was given to West Bengal in November 2017.

Earlier this year, the State government observed November 14 as Rosogolla Day to mark one year of obtaining the GI tag.
