Murali Vivekanandan told Moneycontrol that the choice of gifting cars was collectively decided by employees, noting that all those who had five years’ service in the company would be given a car. “This (car) is what they have done. And, not for what they are going to do,” he said.

He indicated that this was the first of many employee-centric initiatives that the company was planning in the coming days. "The objective is to share wealth with people who had toiled for the growth of the company," he added.

Gifting of cars seems to have kicked off a trend as a few days ago, another Chennai-based software-as-a-service company (SaaS) Kissflow gifted luxury BMW cars to its senior leadership team.

Five senior executives of the firm, which is celebrating the 10th year since the launch of its flagship 'no code’ work management product, have been gifted the new 5 series BMW cars. Each of the cars are about Rs 1 crore.
