Best boss ever! Diamond merchant gives 1260 cars, 400 flats to employees

Savji Dholakia, a Surat-based billionaire diamond merchant who famously made his son do blue-collar jobs to learn the value of money, has gifted 400 flats and 1,260 cars as Diwali bonuses to his employees.

Dholakia, who owns the Hare Krishna Exports, has distributed the flats and cars as Diwali bonuses to his best employees. The company will contribute Rs. 5,000 to loan instalments for five years; a major part will go from the employees’ salary .

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

He said the 400 flats of 1,100 square feet would be allotted in the company’s own housing scheme.


“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.

The Diwali bonus, announced at an informal meeting of employees, is an annual ritual in the company.

Last year, the company similarly gave 491 cars and 200 flats to its employees. The year before that, it spent Rs. 50 crore on performance incentives, Dholakia said.

The billionaire, who grew up in Amreli in the Saurashtra region, set up his business with a loan from his uncle.
