It was the occasion when the firm owner, Savji Dholakia whole-heartedly gifted 600 cars to its employees as Diwali bonus at an event named as ‘Hari Krishna Skill India Incentive Ceremony’.
It was a notable moment when out of those vast number of employees,two women, one of them a disabled person and two male employees of the firm received keys of their cars from the Prime Minister himself in Delhi.

This is a tradition of the company. The employees have contributed to the growth of the company with their skills so this ceremony has been called 'Skill India Incentive Ceremony'. The entire payment for the cars will be made by the company: Savji Dholakia pic.twitter.com/ZRrsyFgnJQ
