Shaktikanta Das on his history background: Experience more relevant than what you learnt 35-40 years ago
Updated : September 23, 2019 06:24 AM IST
Das pulled out from retirement and dashed to the Mint Road within two days of Patel's calling it quits on December 10, 2018, after many a run-in with the government.
Both Patel and his predecessor Raghuram Rajan have illustrious academic records. While Rajan is an internationally acclaimed economist, writer and sociopolitical thinker, Patel is known for his papers on monetary economics from among the world's universities.
Das has done history from St Stephen's, New Delhi, who, after this, joined the civil service and retired in May 2017 as the economic affairs secretary.
