Newly-appointed RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das on Wednesday asserted that the central bank will look forward to resolving all ongoing issues of the banking sectors via discussions.

When asked about the tiff between the RBI and the Central Government, the Governor said every institute has its autonomy and should have accountability as well.

"I will try and uphold professionalism, core values, credibility and autonomy of this institution".

"Inflation targeting is an important function as it is a mandated requirement of RBI now", Das said. He also claimed that it is only the banking segment that is facing several challenges now that need to be solved as soon as possible.
