Given it is distance dependent, I'm going to assume that it was offered based solely on geographical distance. One tiny area of the country probably has it even offered. 199k is a lot of houses, but it's really just the size of a single large town/small city.

Once an Engineer walks into a bank in Mumbai & asks for a Rs. 50,000 loan.
The bank asks for Security & the guy hands over the keys & documents of his 7-Series BMW which is parked on the street in front of the bank.
After all necessary checks the bank agrees to grant him the loan.
... The bank's President & all officers enjoy a good "laugh".. For the Engineer , who used a 1 crore BMW as collateral against a Small Loan of Rs. 50000.
The car was parked in the banks garage safely.
2 months later the guy returns & repays Rs. 50,000 & the interest which comes to Rs. 1250.
The loan officer says, Sir v r very happy to do this transaction, but we r a little puzzled, while u were away, we checked u out & found that u r a "MULTIMILLIONARIE", then why did u bother to borrow 50,000??
The Engineer replies, where else in Mumbai can I park my car for 2 months for only 1250 and expect it to be there when I return??
The Engineer smiles & says.. Pleasure doing Business with you all....
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.-John Q. Adams You must accept one of two basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not alone in the universe. And either way, the implications are staggering.-Wernher von Braun Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.-Albert Einstein
Yeah you are right.. In US People won't speak like that. If you notice the entire story was build up in India Mumbai Location. So the text is different and it's not US English
Well I'm also a Indian now residing in US
