IBJA President Mr. Mohit Kamboj meets newly appointed Police Commissioner of Mumbai
After some board meetings, IBJA President Mr. Mohit Kamboj and Directors of the association are meeting up leaders and Government official to raise concerns about the unfair practices and crime taking place in the industry.
To get some solution for the increase in the number of crime in gems and jewellery industry, President Mohit Kamboj and directors of the association met the newly appointed dynamic Police Commissioner of Mumbai, Rakesh Maria at his office in February. They discussed about the worsening law and order situation in the industry. The safety of the Zaveri Bazaar was also raised while discussing about other aspects that disrupt the business of the manufacturers and retailers.
The points that were highlighted during the discussion also included the increase in the number of thefts and chain snatching incidents in the Zaveri Bazaar and the rest of Mumbai. Following the discussions, Maria assured the President and others of taking stringent measures in next one month the condition will improve. He said, “I am completely aware of the worsening state of law and order in the Zaveri Bazaar. I would inspect the area in next 15 days and would prepare a report with the help of Mohit Kamboj to take substantial action.”
On the basis of this report, Maria will sit with the officials of Zaveri Bazaar police station and take some serious action within the month of March. Maria requested the IBJA delegates to give him some time to take some effective actions. He said that a scheme will be implemented to deal with the existing traffic conditions at the venue. The scheme will also include solutions to curb the chain snatching issues occurring in Zaveri Bazaar. He adds, “Despite of being such a big industry, the gems and jewellery industry in India has no safety measures.”
Kamboj agreed to Maria and adhered to support him by every way. He further honoured him with a bouquet and a shawl. Statue of a Peacock was handed over to Maria as a token of memory. IBJA further presented the Jewel Trendz Magazine and IBJA coffee table book to him.
