The ‘Chuttak’ Assorters are the ‘daily wage’ community who play an important role in the Diamond trade. While Bharat Diamond Bourse has been successful in providing vaccination facility to fight COVID 19 to all its members as well as Gem and Jewellery Industry members from outside the complex, the bourse committee has gone ahead and decided to vaccinate the ‘daily wage assorters’ community or ‘Chuttaks’ as well. As Mr Anoop Mehta, President BDB puts “Bharat Diamond Bourse has always strived to support the country during adversities and calamities. During this ongoing PANDEMIC too BDB is supporting the ‘Chuttak’ community to come to the bourse premise and get vaccinated”. A special rate of Rs 100/- only is being charged for this and the balance amount is funded by World Federation of Diamond Bourse, Gem and Jewellery National Relief Fund and BDB. Mr Mehul Shah, Vice President BDB adds, “I wholeheartedly thank Yoram Dwash, President WFDB, and Sanjay Kothari, Chairman, Gem and Jewellery National Relief Fund and other donors for having supported this drive to help the ‘Chuttak’ Assorters who are ‘daily wagers’ and important to the diamond trade and are part of the Diamond family. It has been our sincere effort to bring together as many Industry members who are directly and indirectly associated with the trade to avail of the vaccination facility organised by the Bharat Diamond Bourse”.
It is also decided by the committee that 1st September 2021 onwards anybody entering Bharat Diamond Bourse will have to be at least vaccinated on the first dose, if not he/she will have to carry a Negative RT PCR report not older than 15 days, which will be made mandatory. With the New Year coming in, from 1st January 2022 only those who are fully vaccinated will be allowed to enter the bourse to carry out daily activities. Bharat Diamond Bourse has always strived for the health of every individual whether directly or indirectly connected to the trade and will become the safest place to conduct business, say Industry sources. Indeed a commendable effort from the entire Bharat Diamond Bourse committee members.
