The overall net export of Gem and Jewellery, which includes gold jewellery, gold medallions and coins and gemstones, in the year 2015-16 was USD 31983 mil (Rs. 209593 crores) as compared to USD 36220 million (Rs. 221332 crores) is showing a decline of 11.69% (-5.30% in Rs. term).

National scenario

Gem and Jewellery Industry had demanded to scale down the duty on gold from 10 per cent to 2 per cent. The hike of import duty on gold has given rise to large scale gold smuggling, which in turn has affected domestic retail and manufacturing industry.

Levying of excise on Jewellery industry will create more trouble for this industry which is already starving. Companys Performance
