State Bank of India - Loan to purchase a computer
And so when the rains were lashing around the city and power was shutdown as a precautionary measure, I got down my childhood comic book collection and leafed through them. Imagine my surprise when I saw this advertisement from State Bank of India offering loans to purchase a computer. This advertisement was published in 1989. The basic crietria has not changed much from 1989 to the present days. Just that in 1989, you need to have a minimum of 2000 rupees as your monthly income. Adjusting to inflation, I guess that would work out to 20,000 rupees in the present day !
I was quite impressed with a line in the advertisement "The world is moving towards a computerized age....".
