He urged for the promotion of local products of J&K like Kala Zeera, Rajmash, honey, mushroom and saffron. He emphasized on the preparation of a comprehensive list of potential GI products of North-Western Himalayan region. 

Further, he advocated the launch of a sensitization programme for farmers through KVKs and for students through NAHEP on registration of GIs. He also urged for sharing the concept of GIs in Farmers Producers Organizations.

Padamshree Dr. Rajanikant said that GI is the legal local guarantee and is the golden sparrow of India by its commodities such as handloom, handicrafts, spices, millets etc. He appreciated different types of Dogra cuisine and stressed upon its conservation and dissemination.

He said that the different stakeholders must recognize and realize the mantra of the IPR regime so as to ultimately bring farmers away from subsistence farming with the transfer of IPR enabled technologies through various commercial, cooperative, public routes.

He gave the example of the GI tag given to Kashmiri saffron (A prized GI commodity of Kashmir) with the proof of origin and its uniqueness. He also discussed other GI products viz., Kashmir Pashmina, Sozni Art, Kani Shawl, walnut wood products etc. 

He highlighted the future Green Revolution of the state with the aim to make J&K a bio-economic state with the national vision of Atam Nirbhar Bharat. He said that a strong resilient approach is required for inclusive growth of India to join the league of developed countries. 

He also emphasized on the five pillars of self-reliant India-Economy, namely Infrastructure, System, Demography and Demand as a strategy for Atam Nirbhar Abhiyan. Dr. Sudershan Kumar, Former DG, DRDO spoke on the topic ‘Role of technology for sustainable development of North Western Himalayas’. 

He highlighted the richness of Northern Western Himalayas in terms of Flora and Fauna of the region and its importance for the GI tagging. He emphasized that how DIHAR’s (DRDO Lab) technologies have changed socio-economic condition of villages of Ladakh by providing low cost sustainable technologies viz., Trench GreenHouse, Double Walled Polyench Green House and Fibre Reinforced Green House.Further, he said that designing and development of such Green Houses has resulted in round the year vegetable cultivation.

Dr. Mahesh Gupta, Principal Scientist, CSIR IHBT delivered presentations on ‘GI and IPR vision of CSIR – IHBT Technologies’. He highlighted various patents and GI tags granted to Himachal Pradesh and the contribution of CSIR, IHBT for the same. 

He gave examples of revival of Himachali Dham and Kangra tea. He further discussed how tea catechins can be used as nutraceuticals and this technology has been transferred to industries.
