The search committee appointed by the finance ministry is headed by former Reserve Bank of India governor Bimal Jalan and is tasked with shortlisting candidates for the post. The chair fell vacant after Subramanian quit the office ahead of the expiry of his term. Other members of the panel are economic affairs secretary and department of personnel training secretary. The government had started inviting applications for the appointment of CEA on deputation basis to fill the position on June 30.
