For the betterment of the Karigar community, to uplift their standard of living, to give a better education to their children, First Step Foundation is founded by IBJA. At present, there are nearly one crore karigars/ craftsmen attached to our industry. Apart from this, there are nearly 10 lac Jewellery and Bullion shops in the country. There are nearly 1 lac manufacturing units and refineries spread across India. All this brings the total work force to nearly 2 crores.
Most of the goldsmiths Karigar/Craftsmen are from Gujrat, Bengal and Sothern India. The entire families of these karigars are dependent on this industry. The restriction on availability of gold does not give worker enough rough to manufacture Jewellery. If the gold is restricted in similar way, this will make all there karigars jobless.
The 3rd India International Bullion Summit – 2015 (IIBS – 3), the 3rd India Bullion and Jewellery Awards – 2015 and the 3rd IBJA Fashion Show – 2015 was held on 01/12/2015 at Hotel Sahara Star, Mumbai.
