The government has uploaded the draft of the proposed Indian Financial Code (IFC) for public viewing. It extends to several areas, reflected in the document’s 94 chapters. Among the issues dealt with are many that have not received much attention in the past but are becoming increasingly relevant, such as consumer protection and infrastructure. Then there is the old chestnut, monetary policy. The draft’s view of monetary policy function has been commented upon in the press, but arguably what has received most attention are the governance aspects rather than the rationale of monetary policy as specified in the Code. 
The Code prescribes that decisions on the interest rate shall rest with a committee and no longer with the governor. This committee is to be constituted as follows. ' There will be three members from the Reserve Bank of India, ‘ including its board, and four members appointed by the government. It is believed that the balance is thus shifted towards the government, as the executive is seldom known to appoint persons who are fully independent of it. 
This arrangement is tantamount to expecting the RBI to control inflation through a monetary policy committee 7 in which it does not have a majority. Note that the bank will be statutorily expected to explain in writing when it fails to attain an inflation target set by the government. The proposed composition of the committee comes up against something akin to the principle of “no taxation without representation”. But the strangest part of the whole affair is the provision for a representative of the Centre who will participate in the deliberations without voting. 
When all the other members are expected to give in writing why they have voted the way they have, the provision for an agent of the government to participate without voting amounts to surveillance. The government seriously underestimates the demoralising effect of such an arrangement, which could keep the best away from heading India’s monetary authority in the future. It must go, of course, and the majority of the RBI in the committee restored if it is to be held accountable for its actions. 
The government could have avoided the credibility gap in the draft IFC had it been a little more aware of an almost three-decade-old debate among economists on the terms of independence for the central bank. In that debate, even those who bat for the primacy of the legislature in a democracy argue for the functional independence of the central bank. That is, while the central bank, as any other public body, cannot choose the goals, it must be granted functional autonomy once the goal itself has been arrived at by democratic means. Otherwise, it cannot be held accountable. This much is clear about the draft IFC’s proposals.
