It's not the first time that the Reserve Bank of India has had a run-in with the Centre, and it certainly won't be the last.
"The autonomy of the Central Bank, within the framework of the RBI Act, is an essential and accepted governance requirement".

"In particular, the central bank is not directly subject to political time pressures and the induced neglect of the future; by virtue of being nominated rather than elected, central bankers have horizons of decision-making that tend to be longer than that of governments, spanning election cycles or war periods", he added. It was a regulator of these. They also said RBI stand on technical issues is undisputed. On Wednesday, reports suggested that the government had floated the idea of invoking Section 7 of the RBI Act, which would allow it to give instructions to the central bank, albeit "in consultation with the Governor".

"Regulators ultimately decide the rules of the game and regulators have to have a third-eye which is to be perpetually be open", Arun Jaitley had said in February.
"In case it really happens, there will be mayhem in the market because at this point of time we can't afford RBI Governor resigning". "But it is quite worrisome to see the government trying to continuously interfere into the RBI's operations".
