SURAT: In an extraordinary show of appreciation, a diamond merchant in Surat, Gujarat, has gifted cars and jewellery as bonus to his 491 employees ahead of the Diwali festival.
Savjibhai Dholakiya, the merchant and owner of diamond export company Hari Krishna Exports Private Ltd., said his employees had performed well and deserved the bonus.
Savjibhai said that he had kept Rs 50 crore aside to be distributed as bonus to his employees, all of whom had met the targets they had been given.
“These workers have been loyal to the company. They deserve it, they have put in hard work which has been reflected in their performance. So, they should be benefitted with the bonus,” said Dholakiya.
