Praveenshankar Pandya, Chairman, GJEPC, said, “The 42nd India Gem & Jewellery Awards recognised the best performers of 2015 and paid rich tributes to the industry’s movers and shakers. I am glad to announce that we have received a phenomenal response this year with over 364 nominations – an increase of around 34% from last year - from all across India. It was important to celebrate their performance as it came amidst a declining world economy.”
The GJEPC 42nd Annual Awards, exclusively open for GJEPC members, felicitated excellent performances of gems and jewellery exporters, on the basis of their export performance, value additions, and investment on R&D among other parameters during 2015. A proprietary quantitative model developed by D&B, was used to shortlist the award winners, based primarily on computation of composite scores calculated by considering various financial and quantitative indicators. The final set of award winners was chosen by the jury panel comprising of Nirupa Bhatt, Managing Director (India & ME), GIA, Ajai Kumar, ex-CMD, Corporation Bank and Pawan Bindal, Director, Dun & Bradstreet.
Set-up in 1966, the GJEPC has over the years effectively moulded the scattered efforts of individual exporters to make the gem and jewellery sector a powerful engine driving India's export-led growth.
