The other key appointments include: Regional Chairman – Northern region, Ashok Seth; Eastern region, Prakash Chandra Pincha; Southern region, Mahender Tayal; Western region, Ashokbhai Gajera; Gujarat region, Dineshbai Navadiya and Rajasthan region, Nirmal Kumar Bardiya.

 Along with various panel convenors: Silver panel - Ram Babu Gupta, Synthetics Panel - Badrinarayanan Gupta, Jewellery Panel - Suvankar Sen, Diamond Panel - Chirag Lakhi, Gold / Jewellery Panel - Shailesh Sangani, colour stone panel - Mahendar Agarawal (Derewala).

 Vipul Shah commented, “Role of the council is important in these trying times. We need to drive export demand – India is the manufacturing hub for the whole world, when it comes to supply of gold jewellery and polished diamonds. Our role will be to ensure welfare of all employees of the sector – as the economy opens up. A lot of marketing effort needs to be put in to drive demand. Once the demand-supply equation is stabilised the sector will see good growth and the council will be able to do well – till then it is going to be a consolidated effort.”
