From the Paper:

"Ad hoc bills were introduced in 1955. It was decided between the Reserve Bank and the government of India that the government could maintain with the Reserve Bank a cash balance of not less than Rs. 50 crore on Fridays and Rs. 4 crore on other days, free of obligation to pay interest thereon, and whenever the balance fell below the minimum, the government account would by replenished by the creation of ad hoc bills in flavor of the Reserve Bank. Ad hoc 91-day T-bills were created to replenish the government's cash balances with the Reserve Bank."
