THE GEM & JEWELLERY EXPORT PROMOTION COUNCIL DEEMS IT A PROUD PRIVILEGE TO HONOR

SHRI POPATLAL B.SHAH




Impelled by Extraordinary courage & conviction. Shri P.B. Shah broke all conventions when he reached educated Indian to take diamond cutting as a carrier, and that too in a far off land, was almost heresy and
shows the mettle of which Shri Popatbhai is made of many do not know that Shri Shah was engaged in diamond cutting in Europe for out seven years.


He was one of the pioneers in promoting the diamond corporation of India. The first modern factory setup to impart foremen level training. This has been the harbinger of the expansion of the industry which supports half a million people in India today. We are proud of the bold initiatives and efforts which have borne so much fruit already. Many of today's expert diamantaries learnt their first lesson under his personal guidance.
