The Exchange said that it was transferring 46 scrips to T / XT Group, while 203 scrips would continue to remain in the same group. BSE said, there are about 81 scrips that are eligible for transfer to T / XT group, however as these scrips are in P, Z and ZP group and already traded and settled on a trade-to-trade basis the same shall continue to remain in their respective groups.

Urjit Patel has taken charge as Governor of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), an official statement said here on Monday. "Urjit R. Patel assumed charge as the twenty-fourth Governor of the Reserve Bank of India, effective September 4, 2016 after serving as Deputy Governor since January 2013," the RBI statement said. Patel, who has been given a three-year term, succeeds Raghuram Rajan, whose three-year term ended on Sunday. The elevation of Urjit Patel as governor has raised expectation among those who were critical of Rajan for not easing enough the monetary policy by cutting interest rates. "We are in the midst of the age of competitive depreciation and of a beggar-my-neighbour philosophy. It brings to mind an old African saying that when elephants fight, the grass suffers," Patel said at the press conference to announce the policy review, on the trend of accommodative monetary policies being adopted by developed economies. "While the ECB (European Central Bank) and the Bank of Japan are printing money and devaluing their currencies on one hand, the US economy is reviving on the other. Anyone in the middle is getting crushed," he added.
