The Central Government has announced that a Hallmark seal will be mandatory on all gold jewellery sold!

Hallmark seal will be mandatory on all sold golden jewellery items from 1st June.

The Secretary of the Department of Consumer Affairs, Leela Nandhan had a press session with the reporters on this and shared:

This implementation of the proposal to make Hallmark seal mandatory on all sold gold jewellery items has already been delayed several times due to appeals for time extension from the traders of gold jewellery! However, there have been no appeals/objections this time!

The Consumer Affairs Department Secretary further informed, The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has been expediting this with full intent!

As such, a Hallmark seal will be mandatory for all the gold jewellery items sold from 1st June.

It is explained on behalf of the central government that this measure will help prevent sales of lower-quality gold as well as protect the buyers from getting cheated!
