Perhaps an advertising token for tractors manufactured by L&T?

I guess we are talking about L&T John Deere 5310 tractor.

The L&T John Deere 5310 tractor made in India is a result of a joint venture between John Deere  and Larsen and Toubro.  The factory is near Pune, India and produces three models of tractors:  5310 (55 engine HP), 5203 (47 engine HP) 5103S (42 engine HP) and 5103 (40 engine HP). The tractors are based on the 5000 series John Deere tractors produced in Augusta GA. 

Warm Regards,

Farming equipment token from John deere.

It is still a mystery when the token was issued and by whom (authority) in India with words -hara tractor bhara khet.

Cheers ;D
