The demand for transfer of reserves from the RBI has been growing for over a year. It led to disputes between the then RBI Governor, Urjit Patel, leading to his resignation. The matter got referred to a committee headed by Dr Bimal Jalan, former RBI Governor, and the then Finance Secretary, Subash Garg had wanted to record a note off dissent in the recommendations, asking for the entire surpluses to be transferred at a single go. Dr Patel has gone, as also the Deputy Governor Dr. Acharya. The present regime at the RBI is much more accommodative of the Government’s wishes. The new finance secretary has been much more accommodative than his predecessor. And hence the substantial fund flow.
