This has come into effect from April 5, 2021. Bharat Diamond Bourse will remain closed till further notice. Members were requested to take out their important documents and valuables on April 5 itself.
Informed Dinesh Lakhani, “BDB representatives are meeting government officials in order to understand the details of the lockdown. They are also requesting if some members, who have active exports to be completed within a stipulated time can work with minimum staff strength and maximum safety protocols in place. But till there is a consensus with government officials on this matter nothing can be said. We have to wait and watch and remain careful.”
