RAPAPORT... The All India Gem and Jewellery Domestic Council (GJC) has elected Anantha Padmanaban as chairman for a two-year term.

The organization, which represents India’s domestic jewelry industry, chose Shaankar Sen to be its vice chairman. The electronic election took place last week.

The GJC changed its name from the All India Gem and Jewellery Trade Federation (GJF) last year. The move reflected its plans to become the official council representing the country’s domestic jewelry trade, much like the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) handles the export business, a spokesperson for the GJC said. It expects to receive government accreditation soon, the spokesperson added.

The GJC also elected the following people to its council of administration (COA):

Mohanlal Jain and S Abdul Nazar (South)
Nilesh Shobhawat (West)
Kamal Singhania (East)

Zonal chairmen:
Shaankar Sen (East)
Ashish Pethe (West)
Anantha Padmanaban (South)

Other COA members elected:
