Shares of Indian jewellery firms rose after jewellers call off a 19-day strike late on Saturday.

The strike was called off following government assurance that they will not be “harassed” by the excise department in collecting a new tax.

Jewellers went on strike from the start of March after the government announced an excise duty in the 2016-17 budget.

Titan Company gained 1.5 per cent, Tribhovandas Bhimji Zaveri rose 2.2 per cent, PC Jeweller surged 3.2 per cent and Gitanjali Gems climbed 4.5 per cent.
