Updated: Mar 28

The Surat Diamond Bourse (SDB) has appointed Govind Dholakia, a Rajya Sabha MP from Gujarat, as its new chairman. This appointment comes a day after the previous chairman, Vallabhbhai Patel (Lakhani), resigned from his position.

On Thursday, the SDB core committee members held a meeting to discuss the next steps following Lakhani’s resignation. After considering various diamond merchants, the committee unanimously decided to nominate Dholakia, the owner of SRK Diamonds and a member of the SDB advisory committee, as the new chairman.

When offered the chairman’s post, Dholakia accepted the role. With his vast experience in the diamond industry, the core committee members believe he will be able to steer the Bourse in the right direction and overcome any obstacles.

Plans for the Future

Laljibhai Patel, a core committee member, stated that regular meetings will be held under Dholakia’s leadership, with the aim of making the entire SDB office complex fully operational. Additionally, the committee plans to restructure various committees, such as the management, finance, legal, and member relation committees.
