KV Subramanian Quits As Chief Economic Adviser
New Delhi: After completion of three years in the finance ministry, Chief Economic Adviser KV Subramanian said on Friday that he has decided to return to academia.
To announce his decision to step down, Subramanian tweeted: “I have decided to return back to academia following the completion of my 3-year fulfilling tenure. Serving the nation has been an absolute privilege and I have wonderful support and encouragement.”
“Each day that I’ve walked into North Block, I have reminded myself of this privilege while endeavouring my best to do justice to the responsibility that comes with the privilege. Being provided the opportunity to contribute during a period of tremendous uncertainty and epochal change has been the lucky icing on the cake,” he shared a statement on the micro-blogging site.
Subramanian, an ISB Hyderabad professor, was appointed the CEA in December 2018. He had succeeded Arvind Subramanian.
