The Government has launched an online system for issuing Bureau of Indian Standard or BIS certificates to jewellers and hallmarking centres in the wake of a likely increase in the number of applications for the certificate. The system was launched on Monday.
The digital solutions for registration and renewal process for licenses for jewellers and for recognition and renewal of Assaying and Hallmarking (AH) Centres have been made for providing ease of doing business, a government release said.
The government has made it mandatory for jewellers to hallmark the precious metals. The requirement for a mandatory hallmarking would increase the number of applications for BIS certificate as per the government assessment.
The online system enables the jewellers to submit the application for registration and fees online a government release said, quoting Union Minister of State for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, Danve Raosaheb Dadarao.
