RBI appoints Sudha Balakrishnan as its first CFO

As CFO, Balakrishnan will also be in charge of the dividend RBI pays to the government, which is crucial in the final budgetary calculations.

Balakrishnan, a chartered accountant, was until recently a vice-president at the NSDL, India's first and largest depository. She will be the 12th executive director at RBI, and will serve a three-year term.

RBI has been on the look out for a CFO since May 2017 when it first advertised for the post. A foreign bank executive was reportedly selected for the post, but declined to join due to differences in remuneration.
