Sinha’s appointment is effective immediately, according to a press release. Sinha was RBI Deputy Governor from January 2011 to January 2014, where he was responsible for regulation of commercial banks and non-banking financial companies.

He spent a total of 37 years at the central bank, where he was involved in the development regulatory and supervisory policies for commercial banks amid ongoing banking sector reforms in India.

Sinha was also RBI’s nominee for the Board of the Securities and Exchange Board of India and held a number of other industry posts. He holds a Master’s Degree in Physics from the Indian Institute of Technology in New Delhi.
