We shall work closely with the Government and take up various issues facing the industry. In sync with Government’s policies, my first effort will be to transform and energize jewellers across India to bring more synergies within the indigenous industry. We shall strive to unite the entire industry and work towards achieving GJC's set goal of One Industry One Voice. GJC will strive to inspire many more jewellers and their association to get more organized so as to project a unified approach to policy changes.
