12. Gifted car
As a way of honouring Tendulkar’s 29 centuries in a Test match by which he also equalled Sir Donald Bradman’s record, Fiat gifted a Ferrari to the Little Master. The Finance rules did not apply to waive off the custom duty for the gifts even as the Financial MInister Jaswant Singh offered to do so. As a lot of people started talking about this and even some citizens took the matter to Delhi High Court, Fiat itself paid the duty to put a full stop to the surrounding controversies.
