"I am grateful to the Board and it is an honour to accept the responsibility of steering the national domestic council. We shall work closely with the Government and take up various issues facing the industry", Padmanabhan said.

"There is a need for the industry to become more organised and compliant. GJC will continue to create better and newer platforms for the industry", he said.

The All India Gem and Jewellery Domestic Council represents over six lakh members, comprising manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and distributors, among others.

Outgoing GJC Chairman Nitin Khandelwal said that in the past couple of years, the organisation has worked as a custodian of the industry by taking up issues of GST, PMLA, hallmarking, initiated state-of-the-art programmes like Manthan to churn intelligence within the industry and organised Labham knowledge seminars on various subjects at more than 45 locations.
