GI-TRIPS is India's and perhaps the world's first travel company which ideated to connect geographical indication to tourism. A geographical indication (GI) is a sign used on products that have a specific geographical origin and possess qualities or a reputation that are due to that origin. In order to function as a GI, a sign must identify a product as originating in a given place.
