The Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) was set up by the Ministry of Commerce, Government of India (GoI) in 1966. It was one of several Export Promotion Councils (EPCs) launched by the Indian Government, to boost the country’s export thrust, when India’s post-Independence economy began making forays in the international markets. Since 1998, the GJEPC has been granted autonomous status.
The GJEPC is the apex body of the gems & jewellery industry and today it represents almost 6,000 exporters in the sector. With headquarters in Mumbai, the GJEPC has Regional Offices in New Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Surat and Jaipur, all of which are major centres for the industry. It thus has a wide reach and is able to have a closer interaction with members to serve them in a direct and more meaningful manner.
Over the past decades, the GJEPC has emerged as one of the most active EPCs, and has continuously strived to both expand its reach and depth in its promotional activities as well as widen and increase services to its members.
The India Gem & Jewellery Awards has over the years been a recognition of achievement and excellence of the leading companies within the industry and acted as a spur to improve performance to others. New categories like Woman Entrepreneur, Socially Responsible company introduced recently have kept the Awards categories relevant and up to date with the current environment.
In order to encourage artisans, craftsmen and designers to aspire for ever higher heights in innovation and design creativity, the Council has been holding an annual design competition which has today evolved into The Artisan Jewellery Design Awards.
The GJEPC itself has directly launched its own CSR activity – Jewellers for Hope -- with an annual Charity Event, which makes a donation to one particular Charity Organisation every year.
Taken together, through its various functions and activities, the GJEPC helps forge a fitting atmosphere to provide a boost for gems & jewellery exports: by creating an enabling environment through its interaction with the Government and other agencies and bodies; by creating awareness and branding of the Indian industry and its products in India and abroad; and by providing the necessary inputs for both the industry and its product to keep developing and improving.
