The shortlisted candidates had served in leading banks and financial institutions and those who fulfilled the requirements were further scrutinized for their experience and leadership qualities.
It was decided that the candidate with the requisite leadership qualities should be selected for the post. The petition alleged that the committee members wanted to conclude the process for the appointment of the DG but it was the finance minister ‘who wanted to keep the post vacant for somebody by whom he should indirectly control all the deposit in the CDNS.’
