According to sources a law which allowed the Reserve Bank of india to circulate Rs 1000 denomination notes to tide over the shortage of currency in the late 1990s has been scrapped. The High Denomination Bank Notes (Demonetization) Amendment Act, 1998 is one of 58 "redundant" laws repealed last week. Parliament passed a bill to repeal 58 laws from the statute books on Friday.

The then finance minister, Yashwant Sinha, had moved bill in December 1998 to allow RBI circulates Rs 1000 denomination notes. Reportedly "To eliminate the shortage of currency notes and to ease the pressure on other denominations, it is proposed to amend section 2 of the High Denomination Bank Notes (Demonetization) Act, 1978. This will facilitate the Reserve Bank of india to issue notes of Rs 1,000 denomination immediately," read the amended Act which came into force in 1999.

On 8 November 2016, the government announced demonetization of all Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi series. It also announced the issuance of new Rs 500 and RS 2,000 notes. The Rs 1000 denomination notes are no longer in circulation and the 58 laws repealed last week would now be removed from the statute books.
