Kalyan Jewellers welcomes mandatory gold hallmarking
Thrissur: Kalyan Jewellers welcomed the central government decision to make mandatory hallmarking of gold jewellery from January 15, 2021.
TS Kalyanaraman, Chairman and Managing director, welcomed the decision and said this move will propel the growth of the organised jewellery sector. “Currently, BIS certification centres are only present in bigger cities and towns. It will be a challenge to effectively manage this aspect, so that retailers in smaller towns can also make the shift to hallmarked jewellery," noted T S Kalyanaraman.
Hallmarking of gold jewellery and artefacts will be made mandatory across the country from January 15, 2021 to ensure purity of the precious metal.
