JCK reports the Gemological Institute of America has revoked 1042 grading reports from diamonds predominantly submitted at GIA in India, after internal controls revealed reports were altered by former employers of GIA's database partner Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) hacking into the system. GIA urges clients in possession of any of these grading reports or diamonds to return them immediately to GIA. Both GIA and TCS said they have transfered the results of their investigation to Indian police authorities, who are currently investigating the matter.
