The inauguration was a grand affair.  To mark the inauguration, of Colours of India, a dance drama was performed. It featured various cultures of India with an inspiring message.

Speaking at the inauguration, Rajarshri Shah, District Collector of Medak District said that Umang 2.0 is not just an expo but is a spirit of entrepreneurship and a platform celebration. It is also a fusion of tradition. The Jain community is traditionally a business community. Business is there in their genes.  But, of late they are also getting into administration, Judiciary, Police, and service sectors. I am an example of Jains getting into administrative services. The major philosophy taught in Jainism is to keep the tradition to heart.  And this expo is about both tradition, trade and whatnot. The Jain community may be less in numbers in terms of population, but their contribution to the GDP is very significant.

Jains are less than 0.5% in India still; they are among the highest contributors to personal Income tax. Jains are the only minority community in this country that never sought any minority favours/reservations.


Giving his opening notes, Sushil Sancheti said the exhibition is the labor of love of many months.  It is spread over 4 halls. Hall 1 is the Corporate and Wedding Arena; Hall 2 is the Diamond / Gold / Silver Jewellery section; Hall 3 is the Lifestyle Arena and related Products and Hall 4 is the Automobile Arena.  Nearly 75,000 footfall is expected in the next three days.

Prakash Sethiya, TNAPTS Zone (Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu Zone) described it as a red-letter day, as JITO Hyderabad has put up a mega Jewellery show, which has now become the talk of the nation.

Paresh Shah, Chief Secretary said JITO Hyderabad has done 169 programs in the last year


The Project Chairman Gautam Sehlot said the expo is a result of 4 months of labour.  The main aim of this is to provide a platform to showcase products, start-up ideas, and women entrepreneurs’ potential to explore the market, encourage economically poor women, and businesses by offering stalls at economical prices, and also celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship.

A spiritual session by renowned spiritual leader Mahatria Ra was held.  Over 1,500 people were in attendance at the session. If you want to have a great family, create a family of friendship, he told his audience, who listened for 90 minutes with rapt attention.  

GM Modular stationed a unique bus, a ‘showroom on the wheels. This is the world’s first luxury showroom on wheels. The bus which is said to have been built for Rs 5 crore is designed by Dilip Chhabria, an acclaimed automobile designer in India.  The state-of-the-art bus fully equipped with the latest innovations like designer switches, decor lighting, home automation solutions, and more from GM offered an opportunity for everyone to experience the cream-of-the-crop products uniquely. This bus has turned many heads and visitors have been enthusiastically checking up on the products on display in the bus.
