INCREDIBLE! This Businessman Just Gifted 600 Cars To His Workers
This has got to be the most generous employer on earth.
An Indian diamond merchant Savji Dholakia has gifted 600 cars to his employees, and India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi helped him hand over the cars to his employees at Hari Krishna Exporters on Thursday.
The cars were made by Indian manufacturer Maruti Suzuki, while around a thousand more staff were offered gifts of cash deposits and apartments in a huge outdoor ceremony in Surat, Gujarat.
Indians often give each other gifts in the run-up to Diwali, a major Hindu festival celebrating the triumph of good over evil that this year falls on Nov. 7.
Modi addressed the prize-giving in his home state of Gujarat via video link, as well as presenting some of the employees with car keys in the capital New Delhi.
Dholakia is famous across India for giving lavish gifts to his employees at Diwali, including hundreds of apartments in 2016’s ceremony.
The showroom value of the 600 cars would be more than $2 million.
Gift-giving in the latter part of the year when several Hindu festivals are celebrated provides a major boost to India’s economy.
The gifts were part of a program targeting staff who have given loyal service to the diamond trader.
“The aim of this program was to reward employees’ loyalty and dedication towards the company,” Dholakia said in a Facebook post.
