Faced with skyrocketing prices of Alphonso mangoes, known across the world for their distinctive taste, a Pune-based trader has offered customers a unique facility of easy monthly installments to buy the king of fruits. Alphonso grown in Deogarh and Ratnagiri of Maharashtra is also known as Hapus mango. Among all the varieties of mango, Alphonso is considered the best. But due to its excellent taste and low production, its prices often remain beyond the reach of common people.
This year also Alphonso mangoes are being sold in the retail market at Rs 800 to Rs 1,300 per dozen. In such a situation, to bring the taste of this special mango to the common people, a businessman named Gaurav Sanas has come up with a unique offer. He is now ready to sell Alphonso on easy monthly installment ie EMI like any expensive electronic item. Talking to PTI, Sanas said, Alphonso’s prices have gone up very high as soon as the sales start. In such a situation, if Alphonso is also given on EMI, then everyone can taste it.
Sons of Gurukripa Traders and Fruit Products, a fruit trading firm, claim that they are the first establishment in the country to sell mangoes on EMI. He said, we thought that if fridge, AC and other electronic appliances can be bought on EMI, then why not mangoes? In this way everyone can buy this mango.
One can buy Alphonso from their shop on installments just like buying a mobile phone on EMI. This requires the customer to have a credit card and the purchase price is then converted into installments of three, six or 12 months. However, to buy Alphonso on EMI at Sun’s shop, a minimum purchase of Rs 5,000 is required. He claimed that so far four people have come forward to take advantage of this scheme. Thus begins the journey of selling the Alphonso on EMI.
