A farmer from Maharashtra's Bhiwandi, has purchased a helicopter worth Rs 30 crore just to help him to travel across the country to sell milk.
Janardhan Bhoir, who is also an entrepreneur, has recently ventured into the dairy business and for that he is required to travel to different cities across the country. So, Bhoir thought that purchasing a helicopter would make his trips more convenient.
According to a report by DNA, the farmer said that he often has to travel to Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, and Gujarat due to his dairy business, but not all cities have airports, so he had to travel for long hours to reach his destination. That's when one of his friends suggested him of purchasing a helicopter for a smooth travel.
Talking to local reporters, Bhoir said, "I have to frequently travel for my business, that's the reason I bought a helicopter. I need it often to look after my dairy buisness and farming."
Recently on Sunday, the helicopter was sent to his village for trial, and the entrepreneur offered village panchayat members to take a ride in his helicopter. He has also made arrangements to build a helipad with a protective wall, on a 2.5 acre land, along with a garage for the helicopter, a pilot room and a technician room.
The helicopter will be delivered to him on March 15. The wealthy farmer, who has property worth Rs 100 crore, has also a real-estate business.
