Persons with at least 25 years of work experience in an Indian or international public financial institution could also apply for the post.

On salary and allowances, the notice said the post carries the pay scale of RS 2.25 lakh (Level 17). The last date to apply for the post is 19 August.

The notice further said the Financial Sector Regulatory Appointments Search Committee (FSRASC) is "free to identify and recommend any other person also", based on merit, who has not applied for the post.

The committee can also recommend relaxation in the eligibility and qualifications/experience criteria, in respect of outstanding candidates.

Acharya was looking after the Reserve Bank of India's (RBI) monetary policy department, including forecasting and modelling unit.

He ended his stint as the deputy governor earlier this month. In June, he had announced that he would resign.

Besides Governor, there are four deputy governors in the RBI.

Currently, there are three deputy governors -- N S Vishwanathan, B P Kanungo and M K Jain. Shaktikanta Das is the governor.
