Maharashtra Education Minister Vinod Tawde proposed starting a jewellery designing course in Mumbai University at the 11th convocation ceremony of IIGJ, an educational project of the Gems and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC). While speaking to PTI, he said, “The convocation of Indian Institute of Gems and Jewellery was an enlightening experience that opens the potential into the diamond industry that requires trained Human Resource. The state government will soon undertake the process of starting a jewellery designing degree course at Mumbai University.” He further said the Gems and Jewellery fraternity should evolve its own local relevance courses for graduate students and avoid copying the syllabus from overseas institutions. “Create an authentic syllabus and undertake degree courses with local relevance,” he added.
