IFS officer Parveen Kaswan tweeted an old bill from the 80s that showed his grandfather selling wheat crops to the Indian government. "Time when wheat used to be at 1.6 rupees per kg," he captioned the tweet while sharing the official paper "J form" from 1987 on social media.
He further mentioned about the habit of the elderly to store all documents safely and wrote, "Grandfather had this habit of keeping all the records intact. This document is called a J form. His collection has all documents of crops sold in last 40 years. One can do a study at home itself."
Earlier, an old bill showing Royal Enfield Bullet 350cc purchased under ₹ 20,000 in Jharkhand surfaced on social media to stun bikers. The much-loved two-wheeler model which costs a couple of lakhs in recent times was billed at 18,700 INR in 1986. The image showed a bill from Bokaro Steel City, Jharkhand.
