Associations

TDF is associated with internationally recognised agencies like The Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC), set up by the Ministry of Commerce, Government of India.

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. 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. It thus has a wide reach and can have a closer interaction with members to serve them in a direct and more meaningful manner.
