The man, Intasar Alam, specially hired workers from Agra to work on the construction of this water tank which now stands tall on top of his four-storeyed building. As per reports, Alam got the inspiration after his wife went on a trip to Agra in Uttar Pradesh and saw a similar model of water tank.
And, after she came back and told Alam about the design of the water tank, he did not need much convincing. He immediately sprang into action and brought over workers from Agra to create his iconic water tank.
According to a News18 report, Alam has revealed that the entire project costed him an amount of Rs 2.5 lakh and the masons were paid Rs 1,200 as daily wage. The Scorpio water tank not only resembles the shape of Alam’s first SUV, it also carries the same number plate with BR 10 786 written on it.
Alam’s water tank has flooded all over the internet, let’s have a look at how social media users reacted to it.
