JA Strike

The strikes organized by the Jewellers Association in Jaipur stand as a testament to the industry’s collective concern and resistance against the government’s imposition of taxes on gemstone jewellery which could have potentially disrupted the traditional jewellery-making processes that have been the hallmark of Jaipur’s reputation as a gemstone hub for generations.


The strike aimed to urge the government to reconsider and engage in a meaningful dialogue with industry representatives to arrive at a solution that both meets revenue goals and safeguards the unique cultural heritage and economic livelihoods of Jaipur’s jewellers.
