Milkha was authoritatively hand-coordinated at 45.6 seconds during his fourth-place finish in the Olympics, however an informal electronic clock at the Games timed him at 45.73 seconds. 

A long time later, electronic clocks were introduced at all global occasions and 0.14 seconds were added to all hand timings to contrast and electronic timings. 

Milkha's hand-planned 45.6 was changed over to 45.74 seconds in electronic planning, which Paramjit bettered by running 45.70 seconds in 1998. 

Milkha had would not acknowledge his (electronic) timing of 45.74 seconds and had broadly pronounced in 1991 that no one could break the record set by him.

Paramjit, who was a piece of the silver award winning 4x400m hand-off group of four in the 1998 Asian Games and furthermore addressed the country in the 2000 Sydney Olympics, said Milkha consistently urged him to buckle down. 

'I met him a couple of times in the wake of breaking his public record. He would consistently ask what I was doing. He would encourage me to work more enthusiastically and keep up self-restraint,' Singh reviewed. 

'It's anything but a gigantic misfortune for the country that Milkha Singh Ji is no more. He was the spearheading legend of Indian games.'

'I'm glad that I had broken his record. He was my good example when I began running. I'm here a direct result of him. 

'I was playing volleyball before. Then, at that point I moved to 400m race and my mentor used to reveal to me that I can possibly break Milkha Singh's public record. In this way, Milkha Singh Ji has been my motivation.'
