Around 30 companies including Laxmi Diamond Pvt. Ltd., Bhavani Gems Pvt. Ltd., K. Girdharlal International, Asian Star Co. Ltd., R. Kantilal & Co., Sur Gems, Vaibhav Gems, Bhansali Diamonds, S. Narendra, B. Saraiya & Co., S.J. Exports, S.S. Diamonds, Chandrakant K. Shah, Sky Gem, Romil Impex Pvt.

Diamonds, Italia Brothers and Tarachandra Vimalkumar & Co. were scheduled to open their offices in the complex today.

Many diamond firms in the past few months shifted their base from the southern parts of Mumbai -- Opera House and Zaveri Bazaar -- traditionally focal points for the city’s diamond and jewelry trade, to BDB as the complex offers better infrastructure and facilities to the trade.

BDB, located in the Bandra-Kurla Complex in suburban Mumbai, occupies  two million square feet and houses 2,500 diamond offices of various size. It offers facilities such as a trading hall, customs office, banking, restaurants and security surveillance in the same complex.
