As being rightly said by Theodre Roosevelt “The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future”. So I take you all down the memory lane and reintroduce you to the overwhelming journey of IIGJJ.

Formerly IIGJJ was known as ‘Jewellery Product Development Centre’ (JPDC) and it came into existence in 2001 with a mandate to serve the local needs of the industry in the areas of Training and creating awareness about modern technology. With the growth of manufacturing sector of Gems and Jewellery industry in Jaipur, the need to expand the portfolio in the area of Training and education emerged and then Indian Institute of Gems and Jewellery Jaipur (IIGJJ) was conceptualised by Gems and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) with the help of NSDC, State government and local gems and jewellery trade. The institute is committed to its Vision, Mission and objectives and imparts best of training and education on subsidized rates.

In recent past, institute has expanded its portfolio of activities and has emerged as the ‘National Center of Excellence’ for the entire Gems and Jewellery industry. All the trainers of institute are certified Master trainers and are committed to quality education. In years to come, IIGJJ will focus on quality with ‘zero defect’

I have taken over complete charge of the Indian Institute of Gems and Jewellery Jaipur (IIGJJ) as its Chairman. For betterment of the Institute, I have with me other renowned industrialists as Vice Chairman and Honorary Secretary with years of industry experience, and are determined to provide with insights that are directly beneficial for spearheading the institute in right direction of imparting value based education and training which follows the ethos of ‘zero defect’ quality compliance in an extremely dynamic national and global industry scenario.

We are committed to lay stress on ‘SKILL Development’ so that students are able to meet requirement of the industry and nation, i.e. ‘Make in India’ concept.

Being an industrialist and ex GJEPC chairman with an experience of representing the G&J sector on national and global front, I would like to apply this knowledge in all the programs to strengthen them so that IIGJJ marches to become the global leader of Gems and Jewellery industry.

I am confident that with a dedicated team of highly qualified and experienced faculty members, we will produce professionals of high caliber to suit the needs of a world without boundaries. We undertake to serve the society with best of professional atmosphere and secured future so that hard earned money of the parents is put to best use. We shall excel them in every walk of life and help them develop professional qualities in them for their bright future.

Further, we aim at opening the flood gates of skill, knowledge, creation of new thoughts and ideas, the incessant efforts to explore the mission of life and the commitment to fulfill the technological and academic needs of the nation. Keeping in view the international scenario, development and modernization of national needs, our Institute will continue playing active role in imparting excellent training and quality education to the youths, inculcating in them a sense of leadership for serving the gems and jewellery industry.
