Under the intellectual property law, 'Shahi Lechi' has now been given GI tag (Geographic Identification).
The Bihar Litchi Producer's Association had applied for the GI tag of 'Shahi Litchi' in the GI Registry office in June 2016. Due to getting a GI tag, the expectations of copying or disturbances in sales of 'Shahi Lechi' will be greatly reduced.
The species of Bihar's litchi species include many species including China, Lavalia, Cassalia, Calcutta, but the royal Lechi is considered to be the best. It is quite lush. As it is round, the seed is small in it. Taste is quite sweet. There is also a special fragrance in it.
