Abstract: The paper demonstrates the observations of an initiative  taken during 2003-2008 in Arunachal Pradesh about the work on Geographical Indication (GI) with reference to the traditional knowledge and plant based products/practices and green technologies. These studies suggest that there are total 12 GI important products and green technologies which are made/ prepared from the indigenous plants. These products and technologies were recorded from Adi and Monpa communities of East Siang and West Siang districts of Arunachal Pradesh. Each product/green technology is belonging to community knowledge domain. These GI important practices/products/green technologies were submitted to the Government of India for their inclusion in main GI database and further processing to ensure community collective rights and IPR on the reported products and green technology.
