The Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) was invited by GJSCI and IL&FS to be the knowledge and certification partner of Jewellery Skill Center. The centre was inaugurated on 5th October’ 2013 by Honorable Minister for Finance, Govt. of India, Shri. P. Chidambaram, at Karaikudi, Tamil Nadu. The inaugural function was attended by Prof. Kaliyamoorthy, Shri. RCM Reddy, MD IL&FS and other dignitaries.

Commenting on the association, Mr. Vipul Shah, Chairman, GJEPC said, “We are delighted to partner with the GJSCI and the IL&FS in the Jewellery Skill Center, Karaikudi which we believe is an important step forward towards upgradation of skills and improving the quality of workmanship and efficiency in production. I congratulate all the organizers and local people for taking this step towards encouraging and motivating the workforce of the gem & jewellery industry.”

In its said role GJEPC will support the Jewellery Skill Center in Organizing faculty, course material etc in regional language, installing and running the center with appropriate equipments, tools, consumables etc., mobilizing trainees in and around Karaikudi for the training and in moderating between the skill center, IL&FS and GJSCI as knowledge and certification partner.

Initially, it had been proposed to conduct the “metal setter (basic)” course according to the NOS created for 25 days (five hours a day) for the already skilled labor force in Karaikudi who were keen to learn the “open setting” to improve their skill set. However, based on the request of GJSCI, GJEPC organized the work benches from Goldsmith Academy, Madurai to transport, fix and run the class on the inaugural day for 12 trainees who were goldsmiths and wished to upgrade their skill set mainly in “open setting”.

The Honorable Finance Minister praised the project and interacted with words of encouragement with all the goldsmiths, and also witnessed the stone setting, all expressing his interest for the industry in this region; especially Karaikudi and Sivagangai region. The local jewellery trade also expressed their optimism and excitement towards the project and has assured their support in the successful running of the skill center and with the excellent response that the programme has received, GJEPC plans to roll out similar such initiatives across various centres in the southern region.
