“According to a notification issued by the government dated February 25, 2013, Dr. Sinha will continue as the Deputy Governor, Reserve Bank, until January 18, 2014, when he completes the tenure of three years from the date on which he assumed office,,” the central bank said in a statement.

Dr. Sinha, who is in-charge of the Department of Banking Operations and Development, was first appointed as the Deputy Governor of the RBI in January, 2011, for a period up to February 28, 2013.

Besides, he will continue to look after the Department of Non-Banking Supervision and the Urban Banks Department as well as departments of risk monitoring, expenditure and budgetary control and legal.
