A farmer and entrepreneur in Maharashtra's Bhiwandi have bought a helicopter to help him travel across the country for his dairy business. Janardhan Bhoir, who is also a builder, recently ventured into the dairy business. The new business requires him to travel to different places in the country. He has purchased the helicopter worth Rs 30 crore to make his business trips convenient.
Janardhan said that he has to travel to Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat often for his dairy business. Since many places don't have the facility of airports, he used to travel for long hours. He decided to purchase the helicopter at a friend's suggestion.
"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 business and farming," Janardhan told local reporters.
The helicopter was sent to Janardan's village for trial on Sunday. Janardhan offered village panchayat members to take a ride in his helicopter.
He has made arrangements to build a helipad with a protective wall on a 2.5-acre land. There will also be a garage for the helicopter, a pilot room and a technician room. Janardhan said that the helicopter will be delivered on March 15.
Janardhan reportedly has property worth Rs 100 crore. Along with the business of farming and dairy, Janardhan has also a real-estate business. Several big companies have warehouses in Bhiwandi and warehouse owners get a good rent from them.
Luxury cars such as Mercedes, Fortuner, BMW, Range Rover and other cars are found in large numbers in the rural area due to the economic prosperity of the locality. Janardhan also owns many warehouses and earns good money from the rent.
He is planning to build a helipad on a 2.5 acre land with a protective wall around it. The property will have a garage for the helicopter, a pilot room and a technician room. Bhoir apparently has property worth Rs 100 crore, according to reports. Using a helicopter for personal travels is actually more common than we'd think.
