Girl buys 2-wheeler with Rs 5 notes

| | KORAPUT | in Bhubaneswar

A college girl in Koraput district has set an example of smart saving by purchasing a two-wheeler vehicle for her with Rs 5 currency notes.

Priyanka Panda, daughter of Bhaskar Panda of Jalaput village under Nandapur block, spent the money that she had saved in the past 14 years from her pocket expenses.

On suggestion by her father, the Plus Three student has been saving money since her age of four years. At an appropriate time, she wanted to spend it for her by buying the new vehicle with total cash payment. She paid 12,000 numbers of Rs 5 currency notes at the showroom counter and bought the vehicle.

Although it was a tough job for the showroom employees to count the total amount that contained the low-value currency notes, they lauded Priyanka’s unique effort.
