The OP's No1 has RFI on the buttsocket. This is a post-1948 rifle. The 1962 date looks legit to me. We most be looking at two different rifles. The first photo clearly shows a RFI identification mark. I'm not seeing any GRI marking on the buttsocket.
The "GRI" is on the forward receiver ring, not on the butt socket. It's not a big deal to grind markings off the butt socket then restamp.

With that lacquered finish and the mix and match stamps I get the feeling this gun was born out of a parts crate.
That is my feeling.

India gained its independance well before 1962. Why would GRI, George Rex Imperious, barrel be on an Indian 1962 receiver?
