GJEPC vice-president Colin Shah comprehensive long-term gold policy for exports and domestic trade is need of the hour.
He said if the government reduces diamond polish import duty from current 7.5% to 2.5%, it would create 10,000 jobs for just re-cutting of these old stones into fresh new diamonds.
