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.
Heartfelt and sincere thanks to the new Governing Board of Directors (2016 – 21), my team members and the contemporary business associates for their unwavering faith in me and giving me the opportunity to once again serve as the President for this well-regarded association. My tenure (2012 – 16) was full of wisdom, memories and achievements.
Team IBJA is focused to work for the entire gems and jewellery fraternity of the country and its people on a whole and subsequently fulfil all the initiatives of IBJA.
Our Vision is to develop IBJA as an association to be one of the richest associations in the country and help our society, our karigars, and protect the craftsmanship of this heritage industry.
