Sources have confirmed to The Indian Express that the RBI views this attempt by the government to dip into its reserves can adversely impact macro-economic stability. Both RBI and the government have been entangled in a power struggle of sorts with many media reports suggesting that RBI Governor Urjit Patel may soon resign from his post.

According to the sources, the government would continue to press the RBI to relax norms to boost lending and transfer at least a third of its Rs 9.6 lakh crore reserve. "If he wants to take decisions unilaterally, it will be better for him to quit".

This was followed by three letters to the RBI from the Finance Ministry which threatened to invoke Section 7 of the RBI Act, reported The Times Of India. The RBI did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The rift worsened late last month when one of the bank's deputy governors said in a speech that undermining central bank independence could be "potentially catastrophic".

"The RBI is something like a seatbelt", Rajan, who is a professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, told CNBC-TV18.

"The RBI is something like a seat belt, the driver being the government. there could be a possibility of not putting on a seat belt".
