The diamantaire has been actively involved in supporting the causes of education, health and welfare, and society in general. Director of Kiran Gems, Dinesh Lakhani said, “Ours is a cricket loving nation and hence, we found it befitting to pledge our support towards society by organising a cricket tournament in support of humanity.” Director, Rajesh Lakhani said, “Also, the tournament serves as a good platform for our employees to unwind, aids in employee team building and fosters our “Play for Cause” initiative. It is a perfect blend of purpose and entertainment.”

Twelve teams were created to play 33 matches over three days. The teams included employees and the top level management, and office assistants. Awards were presented to the winning team, runners-up and individual performances. The winning team and runners-up team members generously contributed their match earnings to Umang Foundation.
