Home Secretary Atri Bhattacharya today said the 'Bishwa Bangla' brand and logo are registered in the name of the state for use in many capacities.

The Bishwa Bangla brand and the logo were created by Chief Minister and she has given them to the state on her own, Bhattacharya told reporters.

His statement came in the wake of newly-inducted leader Mukul Roy's claim that Bishwa Bangla is not a entity but a private company owned by Abhiskeh Banerjee, nephew of

"This (Roy's claim) is absolutely wrong and baseless. It does not belong to anybody and nobody holds any copyright over it," Bhattacharya said.

In fact, the state government has initiated legal action against one individual for "misusing" the Bishwa Bangla brand and logo last week, he said.
