The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in its board meeting under the newly
appointed governor has decided to further examine the governance
framework of the central bank. The board meeting that lasted for almost
four hours reviewed the current economic situation globally and
domestically, matters relating to liquidity and credit delivery, and issues
related to currency management and financial literacy. The 18member
board also went through the draft report on the Trends and Progress of
Banking (201718).
Former chief economic advisor has said the Reserve Bank of India (RBI)
is adequately capitalised, but the money should be used for fixing the
financial system and not for financial deficit or financing government
expenditure. He said under economic principles savings should not be
used for current consumption, but for longterm investment. He added
that the central bank could be massively capitalised, which does not
mean the money can be used for financial deficit or financing government

investors’ lack of confidence in chances of U.S.China striking a trade deal

governor, scheduled post market hours. Wholesale inflation easing in Nov
2018 s upported the markets.
