The Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council’s (GJEPC) Gem Testing Laboratory (GTL) at Jaipur has earned a 40 percent growth in its performance in the months April – September 2014, compared to the 15 percent growth experienced in the comparable period last year, which is being attributed to the constant upgrading of technology and a quick turnaround time to deliver results.

This substantial increase in growth in the last two years has churned a sort of cyclic reaction of further encouraging GTL, Jaipur to install and upgrade new technology in the future as available, and offer the best services to the industry. Moreover, it has also gained the trust of its customers by providing the testing results in simple parlance, marked difference in the fees that are charged by their Indian counterparts and international players.

“We are proud of GTL’s impeccable performance and services offered to Indian and International markets alike. It is indeed due to GTL’s constant endeavour to keep itself abreast of quality and technological norms prevailing in the industry that the laboratory has reached pinnacle of success. With such superior quality, indigenously, it is a matter of great pride for the GJEPC and its allied companies to be the torchbearer internationally and in India and take the flag of Indian superiority to higher echelons of current and long-time success,” said Mr. Vipul Shah, Chairman, GJEPC.

Jewellery manufacturers and retailers preferred to avail gemstone testing services from international labs in India. GTL‘s competitive pricing as against its International counterparts while delivering the same quality result in the business of testing has accelerated growth in their business in the last two financial years. GTL attracts gem dealers and foreign tourists in high numbers who vouch for the unique turnaround time, competitive pricing and quality services.

The Certification charges by GTL are lower by 10 percent of the charges by Gemological Institute of America and less than half of Gemological Institute of India, Mumbai. GTL constantly upgrades its technology with the latest machinery and models that are procured and used in undertaking testing requirements for manufacturers and consumers. Some of the equipment at lab comprise of Laser Raman Spectrometer, FTIR Microscope, UV-Vis-NIR Spectrometer, Diamond View, Cut Scanner for Diamond, amongst others. Also, the testing reports issued by GTL provide adequate disclosures and transparent codes, while the turnaround time of testing conducted at GTL is a maximum of two working days as against a minimum of a week at other labs. GTL accepts a load of giving results to batches of 50-55 stones in a span of 2 days and also has the facility to issue test results on an urgent basis in a span of two hours.

Apart from its laboratory functions, GTL conducts research and presents the reports across journals, thereby encouraging information and knowledge amongst the industry and students.
