Re: [IAC#RG] PUBLIC GRIEAVANCE: Is Mr. Rajan the Governor of RBI or not ?

Dr. K.C Chakrabarty
Deputy Governor
Reserve Bank of India

5-January 2014

Respected Sir

I am caused to address this email to you for the following reasons. Kindly note that this concerns deep corruption in your organisation, and which if not rectified promptly shall cause India Against Corruption to take its lis to the anti-corruption agencies, including the proposed LOKPAL

1) That on 12. August 2013, Mr. Vipin Malik (A former Central Board Member of RBI) exposed in the Pioneer newspaper that Mr. Raghuram Rajan an "Indian Origin American" is being appointed as Governor RBI on a "contractual basis". [] The said news report was never formally denied by the RBI.

2) That on 12.August 2013 the Indian Express reported that Mr. Murli Manohar Joshi had given a calling attention notice in Parliament on this "foreigner" issue. []. The report stated "He, however, holds an Indian passport and is learnt to have provided a copy of the same to the government for submission to the Speaker's office. The evidence of Rajan's nationality in hard copy will be handed over to Joshi to put the matter to rest."

3) That immediately upon taking over as RBI Governor on or about 4-Sept-2013 Mr. Rajan announced some initiatives /directions of RBI in his speeches which are self evidently calculated to weaken India's PSU Banking systems, its indigenous payment systems and to destroy India's economy to hand it over to foreigners. IAC has reason to believe that Mr. Rajan is doing this to oblige the persons who placed him in his present position. These decisions include mandating AADHAAR / UID for banking, using UID as a KYC identifier, allowing rapacious and under-regulated telecom and micro-finance vested interests into the banking space, encouraging DBT through these non-banking interests and so on. All these actions are being carried out in a tearing hurry by Mr Rajan before the Lok Sabha elections get completed. As these are mainly being rushed through in the garb of "financial inclusion" through the RPCD, the undersigned recalls all his previous correspondence with yourself concerning "financial inclusion" as evidence that you also appear to be part and parcel of this corruption.

4) That on 30.Sept.2013 and 9.Oct 2013 the undersigned corresponded with senior officers of the RBI to know, in RTI, the details of Mr. Rajan's nationality and his actions on FI such as UID. No reply was received.

5) That a few days back, the undersigned was shocked to learn that some cronies of Mr. Rajan had been appointed to a Financial Inclusion committee which was actually secretly mandated to propose a slew of anti-national, anti-banking proposals such as by the GSMA telecom interests which had been given a private invitation by the Committee's chairman Mr. Nachiketan Modi or suchlike. At the present moment IAC would not like to remind the nation about the fixers and touts which the GSM lobby is notorious for using, as this is sub-judice in the Supreme Court.

6) Accordingly on 3-Jan-2014, the undersigned sent a public email to senior officers of RBI asking for RBI's official RTI disclosure of Mr. Rajan's nationality (also in connection with an edited transcript of Mr Rajan's media briefings on RBI website) along with disclosure / publication of the Nachiketan Modi Committee's report which was to be submitted by 31.12.2013.

7) Instead of replying to the undersigned, the RBI / Ministry has today chosen to reply to IAC through the media in reference to a convoluted 4 month old RTI request of one S.C.Agrawal to say that Mr. Rajan's nationality cannot be disclosed to the citizens. []

8) This is clearly a preposterous proposition when the citizens are the nation's paymasters and Mr. Rajan is a public servant notwithstanding that he is hired on a contractual basis. In any case the information requested of Mr Rajan's passport copy has already been provided to Parliament, and hence cannot be denied thereafter to any citizen who desires to have the said information also.

9) Accordingly, India Against Corruption is formally calling upon you (as Mr. Rajan has serious conflict of interest and is also not an officer - but a contractee) to immediately publish with 48 hours on RBI's website a) an official statement on Mr Rajan's nationality b) the copy of the controversial Financial Inclusion report by the Nachiketan committee, so that IAC can pursue this suitably.

Kindly acknowledge this email by return.

Yours faithfully

with best wishes

I refer to my RTI request (see below) to you and which is still not formally replied.

It is clear to the India Against Corruption movement (IAC) that such blatant disregard by public officers for the rights of the people of Hindustan is to cover up that Shri Raghuram Rajan may be a foreign national who is misleading the people of Hindustan, and which is why RBI is unable to formally certify in RTI to interested citizens knowing the truth about Mr Rajan's nationality that Mr. Rajan has not held citizenship / nationality of any other country and despite Mr. Raghuram Rajan holding some closed door session for the post policy session with the media the raw data feed for which is at []

The IAC is thereby caused to suspect that Mr Raghuram Rajan has been inducted into RBI solely to push a financial agenda dictated by overseas interests to derail the Indian economy.

The IAC is shocked to learn that Mr. Raghuram Rajan on the instructions of carpet-bagger interests had constituted a 13 member committee, primarily of his cronies, to facilitate the backdoor entrance of telecom interests into the highly regulated banking and financial services space under the garb of "financial inclusion".

The IAC is shocked to learn that the Chairman of the Committee (who is apparently Mr. Raghuram Rajan's batchmate) had issued a personal invitation to the GSM operators association to make a private presentation on so-called "Mobile Money" and which presentation was made up by foreigners and which is a blatantly anti-national document to compromise India's economic and financial sovereignty which no true Hindustani shall countenance.

There are several other instances of irregular appointment and functioning of this committee which IAC wishes to highlight to the Lokpal.

Accordingly, I therefore call upon you to do the following under Right to Information immediately and suo-moto to fulfill the rights of people of Hindustan.

A) To place a certified declaration / Public Notice / Press Release on RBI's website containing the exact text of what Mr. Rajan supposedly said to the media on that conference call concerning his nationality / citizenship.

B) Publish the report of the 13 member financial inclusion committee which was due on 31.Dec.2013 immediately on the RBI's website so that people of Hindustan may read it and do what they have to do.

This information request is made in larger public interest as RBI very well knows that the undersigned and IAC are experts aggrieved by RBI's skewed and corrupt financial inclusion policies, but were deliberately not personally invited to participate by this closed Committee of Mr. Rajan's cronies who are out to facilitate the loot of India's financial resources by foreigners.

Kindly acknowledge this email and do the needful.

with best wishes

Kindly refer the following

1) My appended email sent to Ms. Alpana Indrajit Killawalla dt.
30.09.2013, to which no reply was received.

2) RBI's proactive RTI disclosure on "Directory of officers and employees"
last updated 8.March 2011 which still lists one D Subbarao as RBI
Governor. (as I personally verified today)

Accordingly, I am constrained to request specific proactive disclosure
suspect that Shri Raghuram Rajan (who is being projected as being the
RBI Governor through Press Releases issued by Ms. Killawalla) is an
impostor and a US national (as distinguished from US Citizen).

1) Digital copy of all Passports held by Mr. Raghuram Rajan in last 25
years. (NB: such information has already been provided to
Speaker/Members of Parliament when they raised issue of Dr Rajan's
citizenship in Parliament. Mr Rajan is carrying out vital public
activities and the RTI Act provides that information which is not
denied to Parliament must also be disclosed to citizens.)

2) Digital copy of all information with RBI pertaining to usage of
UIDAI / AADHAR in banking sector.

Kindly note that I require this information ASAP to apply for sanction
of Central Government to prosecute Dr. Rajan, Dr. D Subbarao and all
their cronies for issuing instructions to link AADHAR with bank
accounts and requiring banks to purchase proprietary equipments and
softwares (at huge cost and unnecessary cost) to process AADHARs.

3) Reasons why RBI's RTI disclosure is not updated to reflect Mr.
Rajan as the RBI Governor.
