RBI deputy governor Vishwanathan quits ahead of retirement

Mumbai: Reserve Bank of India deputy governor NS Vishwanathan has quit three months ahead of his retirement in June due to health reasons, posing a challenge for navigation of key supervisory and regulatory functions of the central bank in one of its most difficult times, people familiar with his decision said.

Vishwanathan would end his nearly four-decade career by March 31 when the central bank would relieve him of his duties, said the people who did not want to be identified.
