Parveen Kaswan, an IFS officer by profession, also shared an old wheat bill earlier on this inflation issue. This bill shows that the price of grain was around Rs 1.6 per kg. Actually the viral bill dates back to 1987 when an IFS officer’s grandfather sold wheat from his land to the Food Corporation of India. He also said that his grandfather had a habit of keeping all records intact. As a result, the bill is still there today more than 3 decades later, giving the present generation a picture of that time.
