Both Bainsla and Gehlot are currently in the news over the reservation bill that provides for five per cent reservation to Gujjar and other backward communities of Rajasthan.ow these unique coconuts are attracting the attention of customers.

"I bought a coconut from the Bainsla range. I chose this coconut because Bainsla is popular now a days," said Deepak, a customer.

Another customer added that the vendor has been selling the coconuts under popular names for decades.

"For the last 20 years, he has been selling his coconuts under different names. This year, he chose the name of Gehlot and Bainsla and people are buying coconuts due to these names," said Ramesh, another customer.

Avatar Singh, who devised this unique business model to sell his coconuts, said that naming coconuts after popular leaders helps in lightening the mood besides boosting the sales.

"Whenever some incident occurs, we start selling coconuts under those names The cost of coconuts under Gehlot range is fixed at Rupees 10 per piece since they are big in size.
