Editorial : A strategic exit


Raghuram Rajan has recently declared that he will not seek a second term as Governor of Reserve Bank of India. The editorial examines the situation.

Important points

  • In the last few months it had become apparent that sections within the Central government were uncomfortable with continuance of Raghuram Rajan as RBI Governor.
  • By ruling himself out by his own Raghuram has saved the Central Government from repercussions of a refusal.
  • On the economic front the Central government was uneasy on Raghuram’s slow pace of interest rate cuts which was alleged reason for slow growth.
  • The Central bank’s crackdown on evergreening of loans also caused friction with the government.

Suggestions for choice of next Governor of RBI

  • The Government must remember that India needs a Governor with enough independence and authority to maintain balance between growth and rising prices.
  • A rubber stamp for rate cuts won’t do.
  • As rightly said by Raghuram, a healthy tension between RBI and finance ministry is not such a bad thing.
