Dr Arvind Virmani to have an interesting tenure in International Monetary Fund

DR ARVIND Virmani’s tenure as executive director of International Monetary Fund (IMF) will be much more interesting than his predecessors given the fact that India intends to make available up to USD 10 billion to shore up resources of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Currently, IMF has no exposure in India though the international body was a key player in bailing out India from its financial mess in early 1990s. It was already reported that the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) approved the appointment of Dr Virmani, currently on extension as chief economic adviser in department of economic affairs (DEA), as executive director in IMF. Dr Virmani will replace Adarsh Kishore, a 1969 batch Rajasthan cadre IAS, in the IMF. Mr Kishore was a former expenditure secretary and then finance secretary. Dr Virmani who served as director in state-owned banks like Punjab National Bank and Allahabad Bank and also in the government think tank ICREAR, is a known economist with a PhD degree from Harvard University.
