Zheng’s mother-in-law, who lives at the west gate of Haishu District, Ningbo City, called and said that she had found a manual deposit slip 45
bank would approve it. Although she had made several trips, the deposit function had changed as early as 1984. In order to find the deposit bill of Grandma Zheng, the two banks have had a lot of trouble.
Forty-five years ago, 130 yuan of manual deposit slip was found unintentionally
“Forty-five years ago, this huge sum of money was unexpectedly found by me. I went to several banks to pay for it.” At noon on January 8, the reporter met with Grandma Zheng. She told reporters that two months ago, she wanted to donate the old cotton-padded clothes at the bottom of the pressing box to the needy families and tidied up the clothes at home for several days. Unexpectedly, when she looked in the pocket
of an old cotton trousers, she suddenly found a deposit slip of 130 yuan. The deposit receipt is herself. It was deposited on March
29, 1974. The deposit bank is the Drum Tower Office of Ningbo Branch of the People’s Bank of China. It has a fixed period of one year with a monthly interest rate of 2.7 millionths.
Speaking of the origin of this “huge sum”, Grandma Zheng recalled the past. Originally, this “huge sum” was deposited by Grandma Zheng just after she took part in the work. She was only in her twenties, and her monthly salary was 28 yuan. Apart from daily expenses, the money has been saved for a year. After depositing in the bank, she put the deposit slip in her cotton trousers pocket in the wooden case. Later, after decentralizing to the countryside, I found this deposit slip, but I can’t remember where to put it. Unexpectedly, 45 years later, it was discovered by accident.
“Recently, I went to the bank several times to cash, and found it very difficult to check the invoice.” Grandma Zheng worried that the old deposit receipts were written by hand, and the computer could not find the relevant information. At first, she went to the bank in front of her house to inquire. The young teller had never seen the old deposit slip, but an old bank employee said that the deposit slip was true, and the bill had to be checked in order to be paid. The previous morning, she went to Ningbo Central Branch of the People’s Bank of China to consult the relevant policies.
“In the 1970s, prices were very low and life was difficult. 130 yuan was a huge sum. I wonder if I could check the list and pay for it?” Zheng felt that compared with the 1970s, today’s prices do not know how many times higher, income is the same. How much can we pay? We have to wait for the result of the bank’s inquiry.
The two big banks struggled to find deposit receipts
The People’s Bank of China and the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China have taken a lot of trouble to help Grandma Zheng find the deposit statement.
Reporters learned that although this deposit slip was deposited in the People’s Bank of China, as early as 1984, the bank’s RMB storage business was undertaken by ICBC. At about 10 a.m. the day before yesterday, the reporter managed to contact Mr. Shen of ICBC Ningbo Branch Office.
