Savjibhai Dholakia has done it once again.

Surat-based billionaire diamond merchant Savjibhai Dholakia, who owns and operates Hare Krishna exports, has gifted 400 flats and 1260 cars as Diwali bonuses to his employees, NDTV reported.

His well-performing staffers will receive the 1,100 square feet flat in a housing scheme being floated by his company. The company will bear part of the monthly instalments.

“We have selected 1,716 employees as the best performers this year. We are arranging for houses for those who already own cars, while those who don’t have a four-wheeler will get one,” Mr Dholakia told IANS.

“The flats would come dirt cheap at Rs. 15 lakh and the monthly instalment, which the employee will start paying after five years will be Rs. 11,000,” he said.

This extra-benevolent Diwali bonus has become an annual feature at Hare Krishna Exports.

Last year, the company gave 491 cars and 200 flats to its employees.

The year before that, it spent Rs. 50 crore on performance incentives, Mr Dholakia said.
