These issues are more of administrative nature which will ensure that no fake or duplicate hallmarked items reaches out to final consumer. We firmly believe that consumer must get pure jewellery and there is no compromise in the same,” said Surendra Mehta , national secretary of IBJA.

Mehta said that the government has already conducted nearly ten meetings with industry association and we are glad that many issues have already been resolved. The government is still open to dialogue and have also proposed formation of permanent advisory committee for mandatory hallmarking which will include industry representatives as well.
