Commenting on the results, Ramesh Kalyanaraman, executive director at Kalyan Jewellers India in a statement said, “We are seeing a robust momentum in revenue and footfalls across all markets largely driven by the ongoing wedding season demand despite a continued spike in gold price.”
“As part of this strategy, we have invested a significant amount of time and effort over the last 3-4 months in building our internal resources. We have hired about 900 personnel largely for over 20 showrooms we plan to launch before Akshaya Tritiya - highest employee addition in a quarter in the history of the company so far," Kalyanaraman added.
During the quarter, Kalyan Jewellers stated that it will open 52 showrooms during the calendar year 2023.
