Common Facility Centre

India is the hub for Diamond Manufacturing. The diamond manufacturing activities are widely spread throughout the Gujarat state. Diamond manufacturing units are established and operated even in the interior villages / small towns of Gujarat. Small & medium diamond manufacturing units located in small towns and interior villages of Gujarat are still operating with the old technology, as cost to upgrade/acquire /install a state-of-the-art technology/equipment is not affordable to them. This has resulted into low productivity and also affecting the quality of the finished goods produced. Further, there also exist a need to organize skill up gradation training for the artisans involved in diamond manufacturing activities to make them aware about the operation & benefit of the state-of-the-art equipment.

Keeping above issues in mind, establishment of CFC was conceptualized. Establishment of CFC in small towns and villages would greatly help to transfer the technological advancement benefit to the needy diamond manufacturer.

This would also provide an opportunity to re-skill them on the state-of-art equipment widely used by the diamond manufacturers globally.

Outcome of this initiative would be obtained in terms of increasing productivity and improving the quality of the finished goods with better yield.
