These are an extremely convenient outlet for theindustry known as automatic retailing . We find vendingmachines in public buildings, transportation hubs and subways,at gas stations, courthouses, hospitals, and the localautomotive repair shop. Any place that people gather, pass by,or must wait, is a good location for vending machines. In ourvending machine, we have tried to incorporate cold beveragesranging from a Rs. 20/- to Rs. 40/-. It is possible for thepeople to buy drinks of his/her choice from a variety of drinksavailable in the machine. Also he/she can buy a combinationof drinks depending on the money he/she would like to spend.The machine will return back the balance amount if he/sheprovides excess money into the machine.II.

It is not like theconventional vending machine which ask the user to provideexact change. Even if the user provides excess money, themachine returns the money back.
