    Agree with Fran, 'two years back' is used, yeah, but doesn´t sound natural (for me).

    I have read plenty of novels these days and not once I have seen the "two years back" thing.

   Well, I am talking about standard English like it is in a comtemporary way; it seems that the new sentence is 'picking up speed'  nowadays, mainly in the Web, sites etc.

    So, I never say never; only that it doesn´t sound natural (I mean, the frequency of use in books etc, not the formal usage)

 

   PP.
