Can someone tell me what was the worth of a quarter tanka in India when Ibrahim Lodi's was the ruler (1516-1526 CE) or what a quarter tank could buy at that time?

  • No inflation calculator for what is now India exists back to 1520, probably because no series exist. The answer will need to Ben in terms of market commodities or rate systems of tax of the day. – Samuel Russell Sep 21 '18 at 9:56

According to the primary source of first page of Richards, John F. (August 1965). "The Economic History of the Lodi Period: 1451-1526". Journal of the Economic and Social History of the Orient. 8 (1); 2.5 yards of cloth. This was apparently remarkably good.
