Indian Gems & Jewellery Industry Needs Urgent Government Intervention

Delhi, India (PressExposure) February 20, 2009 -- Contributing 13.41% in the country’s total merchandise exports in 2007-08, the Indian gems and jewellery market recorded positive growth, says new research report by RNCOS, “Indian Gems and Jewellery Market – Future Prospects to 2011”. India has emerged as one of the leading players in the global gems and jewellery industry on the back of its big pool of skilled manpower.

Although the local manufacturing activities are severely hit due to difficulties in availability of raw material, recessionary fear in the US, which makes up for nearly 50% of the global jewellery sales, and weak international demand further compounded the situation, said a RNCOS analyst. Thus, the financial fiasco in the US has hampered the Indian jewellery industry too.

RNCOS analyst has suggested that the ongoing crisis in the industry could be addressed provided the government takes necessary steps like permitting status holders to directly import and sell gold to exporters, rise in rupee subvention from 2% to 4%, releasing dollars from the government’s reserves and making adequate dollar credit lines available by RBI.

The analyst is optimistic that if the government takes the suggested steps, the Indian gems and jewellery industry will recover from this unprecedented crisis in the next six months.
