Excel Gautam Joshi Ji. This is question of Economics, one-line question, one-line answer. How can we discuss on it. It is question of authority given to someone to do something. Govt, finance dept has authority to print one rupee note, so it does. Someone has right to sign, so he does e.g. finance secretary. I may be wrong in my technicalities, if so please correct.
Reserve Bank Of India was established in 1935, and was nationalised in 1949. Prior to that all notes were issed on behalf of CROWN by Finance Ministry, the ultimate monetary authority for Indian Currency. subsequent to delegating the currency issuing function to RBI, all higher denomination notes were issed by RBI. Only as a matter of convention the one rupee note continued to be signed by Finance Secratary.Probably prior to 1949 one rupee note was the highest denomination note in circulation.
