There is also a lot of traction for wedding jewellery due to ongoing marriage season.“Overall there is a positive sentiment in the market, so we are hoping 15-20 per cent growth in sales this Akshaya Tritiya, compared to last year,” All India Gem And Jewellery Domestic Council (GJC) Chairman Nitin Khandelwal told PTI here.
