RBI moves further on transparency

I should have posted this a couple of days ago. Anyways…..

I had posted about RBI’s teleconference with researchers/analysts in its previous monetary policy. It is great to note that RBI has taken more steps to usher transparency.

RBI has been hosting press conferences post policy in Mumbai for a while now.   But this option was available only to Mumbai based media network. It was difficult for regional/other media networks to participate. Not any more. RBI Governor will also be interacting with the regional press as well via teleconference. RBI had put up a form for the regional media to register. In case people missed it, RBI has added further more information:  

Governor’s Interaction with Regional Press
Dr. D. Subbarao, Governor and Deputy Governors of the Reserve Bank of India will interact with the Regional Press on the Annual Policy through teleconference between 3.45 PM and 4.15 PM today, that is, on Tuesday, April 20, 2010.
