Maintenance of growth trajectory is one of the important focus areas the apex bank will concentrate on and will aim for timely measures too, said the newly-appointed Governor of Reserve Bank of India Shaktikanta Das.
Speaking at his maiden press conference in Mumbai on Wednesday, after taking charge of the RBI Governor, Das assured that he will hold fair, frank, and objective consultations with all stakeholders as this will add depth and value to the issues. For this, he would be meeting the CEOs and MDs of public sector banks tomorrow.
He added that he would meet private sector banks as well.
When asked about the tiff between the RBI and the Central Government, the Governor said every institute has its autonomy and should have accountability as well.
He said, stakeholder consultations are needed as it is the government that runs the economy and formulates policies. Mr Das emphasised that problems can be resolved through dialogue.
Emphasising that this was a great opportunity for him, he said he will uphold the values and autonomy of the central bank.
Mr Das gave his best wishes to former Governor Urjit Patel for his future endeavours.
