The saying “Honesty is the best policy” is attributed to Benjamin Franklin, one of America’s Founding Fathers. 

Recently, the same maxim is personified by an Indian employee working in Kuwait, a country in the Middle East or Western Asia.

Sunil Dominic D’Souza is praised for his integrity as he recently returned Kuwaiti Dinar 62,859 (US$ 207,919.53), which was accidentally credited to his bank account. 

He hails from Bengaluru (earlier known as Bangalore), the capital of the southern Indian state of Karnataka.

For the last 10 years, D’Souza has worked as an AC Technician at NBTC Group, a civil engineering company in Kuwait. Since he was about to retire from his work and return to India, the company deposited his service benefit through a leading bank. 

Nevertheless, the bank accidentally credited Kuwaiti Dinar 62,859 (US$ 207920.73) to his salary account (30 times more than his original salary amount). Once he came to know about it, D’Souza swiftly notified the matter to NBTC authorities, which in return informed the concerned bank, reports indiansinkuwait.com.

Later, the bank admitted that it was a mistake on its part. 

In the aftermath, the NBTC management and bank authorities have praised the uprightness of D’Souza.

Acknowledging his honesty, Mohammed Naser M. Al-Baddah, NBTC chairman, and other officials awarded D’Souza a memento, a certificate of appreciation, a SmartPhone, and a cash prize of Kuwaiti Dinar 250 (US$ 826.93) in a ceremony held at the NBTC Corporate Office.

Another company, Highway Center, a leading chain of supermarkets based in Kuwait, gifted him a cash prize of Kuwaiti Dinar 150 (US$ 496.16) on January 20.

Most importantly, the bank rewarded D’Souza with a cash prize of Kuwaiti Dinar 1000 (US$ 3307.73) and a certificate of appreciation.

According to indiansinkuwait.comD’Souza remains an inspiration for one and all as he displayed his integrity.
