Centre appoints Rajkiran Rai as NaBFID managing director for nearly 5 years





The Centre and the board of National Bank for Financing Infrastructure and Development (NaBFID) has appointed Rajkiran Rai G as its managing director (MD) for nearly five years.


After the Financial Services Institutions Bureau (FSIB) recommended Rai’s name for the top job at the government-backed development finance institution (DFI), the (RBI) and central government agencies gave their nod for the recommended candidate. The board of NaBFID approved Rai’s appointment on July 30 based on clearance by the RBI, centre and the DFI’s nomination and remuneration committee.


Rai took charge as the DFI’s MD on August 8, and will hold the top post till May 18, 2027, according to details of the appointment.


After beginning operations in its new avatar, picking Rai as the MD of Rs 20,000-crore NaBFID, was the FSIB’s first recommendation.


The DFI is looking to commence its operations soon. The Centre, in October 2021, had appointed K V Kamath as chairperson of the government-owned DFI. Subsequently, government nominees Pankaj Jain and Sumita Dawra were appointed directors to the board of DFI.


The government has already infused Rs 20,000 crore into NaBFID to help the DFI start its operations to catalyse investment in the infrastructure sector.
