The database will be utilized to provide employment opportunities to the artisans all over India in the future.

Access to Banks and other Financial Services*: A Parichay card will also be an asset for the artisans to approach banks for financial support as it will act as a proof that they are recognized artisans working for the gem and jewellery industry.

State and Central government benefits*: Once a large enough database is created, GJEPC will be approaching the State and Central Governments to link their benefits and schemes like housing schemes etc. to the Parichay Card

Two Way SMS verification*: This is a key feature which is important for verification of the artisan in case of emergency where he needs to prove his identity in case if he is interrogated by police/customs/government officers while carrying any gold, precious raw material or jewellery. In such cases he can prove his identity by presenting his Parichay Card to the interrogating officer, who can verify its authenticity by sending an SMS to a mobile number present on the card. A two-way SMS will be sent automatically to the device verifying the identity of the artisanproving that the Parichay Cars is genuine and reliable.
