New Delhi, Dec 11 (UNI) Former Department of Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das was on Tuesday appointed the new Governor of the Reserve Bank of India.

“The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet has approved the appointment of Shri Shaktikanta Das, IAS retd, former Secretary, Department of Economic Affairs, as Governor, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for a period of years,” a government order said here.
