The applicant should have an experience of 15 years in banking and financial market operations, said a public notice indicating that candidates from the private sector will also be considered for appointment.

Traditionally, one of the four deputy governors is from the public sector banking industry. If the government decides
to appoint someone from the private sector, it would be a first for RBI.

Mundra, a seasoned public sector banker, was appointed deputy governor for three years in July, 2014.

The central bank has four deputy governors — two from within the ranks and one commercial banker and an economist to head the monetary policy department.

According to the notice put up on RBI's website, applicants should have extensive experience as a full-time director or board member and possess understanding, at a very senior level, of supervision and compliance in the financial sector.

Strong competencies working with financial performance data, including interpreting, summarising and communicating high-level output and strong and clear communication skills on matters of public policy are also listed as criteria for sending application.

Duly filled in applications should be submitted before 21 June and those applying for the post should not exceed 60 years of age as on 31 July 2017, it said.

The appointment will be made for a period of three years and the person will be eligible for re-appointment. The post
will have a fixed salary of Rs 2.25 lakh per month plus allowances.
