Because cash, cheque and card payments are too mainstream!
A man from Madhya Pradesh recently purchased a new Honda Activa scooty on the occasion of Dhanteras with the entire amount paid in coins.
Rakesh Kumar Gupta visited the Krishna Honda Dealership in Panna Naka, Santa and made a payment of Rs.83,000 for his new ride in coins with most of them being in the denominations of Rs. 5 and Rs. 10. The dealership took over three hours to count the coins after which they handed the keys of his new ride to Gupta.
Gupta who carried the coins in four gunny bags chose the top variant of the newly launched Honda Activa 125.
Anupam Mishra, the showroom manager said on the same, “On Dhanteras, Rakesh Gupta came to our showroom in an auto with several gunny bags. He expressed his desire to purchase a Honda Activa 125 BSVI. I talked to the showroom owner Ashish Puri who said that the counting of coins will take time. We did not want to disappoint anyone on Dhanteras, and so decided to fulfil his wish.”
On getting his new ride, Gupta shared how the festival of Diwali is the biggest auspicious occasion for him and his family, and that he has full faith in the brand.
