In August, Gurumurthy was appointed as a part-time, non-official director on the central board of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). Gurumurthy, according to The Economic Times, is the editor of Tamil political weekly Thuglaq and a co-convener of RSS affiliate Swadeshi Jagran Manch. He is considered a vocal supporter of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government at the Centre, Bloomberg Quint reported. His Twitter profile describes him as a "chartered accountant by profession and writer on political and economic issues by choice".
In July, Gurumurthy accused former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan of destroying the central bank's independence "by making it subservient to global thought rather than pursue India-centric solutions". "The RBI can't now move away from that line for fear of going against global financial opinion. RBI has lost its capacity to think for India," Gurumurthy said in tweet.
