He said, “India’s Gem & Jewellery industry through GJEPC is working on the Prime Minister’s Vision of ‘Make in India’ and is constantly putting the efforts to achieve exports of US$ 75 billion and creation of additional two million jobs by 2025. The industry is pleased to note that today DGFT issued public notice saying exporters can submit self-attested copies of shipping bill instead of custom attested EP copy of shipping bill. It is a big step towards ease of doing business. Our industry is on the path of becoming more organised and GJEPC has initiated a number of self-regulation measures to achieve this goal.”
