It’s ‘Surat’ – the “Diamond City of India ” where 90% of the world’s diamonds are polished that certainly makes Surat the World’s largest Diamond polishing & cutting Hub. Located in Gujarat, Surat is the 8th largest city of India, ranked No. 4 in the list of cleanest cities in India and is on its way to become a “Smart City” under India’s “Smart Cities Mission. Diamond cutting & polishing was started in Surat in 1901 & exports began in 1970 (firstly to USA). Since then, Surat has never looked back & been the No. 1 Diamond city of all times. Well done Surat. We are proud of it!
