The first section you mentioned was 498B, but there is no such existing section in the Indian Penal Code. Now, you mentioned 489B which is using as genuine, forged or counterfeit currency notes or bank-notes. 

Please elaborate on your question and let us know.

Section 489B of the Indian Penal Code states that whoever traffics or forges and use a fake currency as a genuine one, shall be punished with imprisonment for life or imprisonment up to 10 years and shall also be liable to fine. 

In Sanskriti Jayantilal Salia v. State of Maharashtra, it was held that in the absence of mens rea, mere use of any forged or counterfeit currency notes cannot attract the provisions of Section 489B.

Hope this is clear.

Section 498A(b) in The Indian Penal Code (b) harassment of the woman where such harassment is with a view to coercing her or any person related to her to meet any unlawful demand for any property or valuable security or is on account of failure by her or any person related to her to meet such demand.]
