BJP leader and Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament Subramanian Swamy has approached the Supreme Court seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into alleged illegalities committed by officials of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) which, he claims, resulted in various banking/financial scams in India..The scams have caused great prejudice to the economy of India and officials of RBI have been in demonstrable active connivance and in grave violations of their statutory duties, thereby failing to prevent these scams, Swamy and Advocate Satya Sabharwal have alleged. ."In the last couple of years, various banks have reported scams after scams wherein the role of bank officials were clearly made out but surprisingly not even a single RBI official has been brought to justice despite RBI retaining the power to monitor, regulate, supervise, audit and direct the functioning of all banking companies in India," it has been submitted. .The RBI has failed to protect the interests of various stakeholders including depositors, investors and shareholders and this has led to the loss of faith in India's banking system, the plea further alleges. "The failure to protect the interest of stakeholders, has led to the loss of faith in the entire banking system in India with the Regulator being supinely indifferent to the series of bank frauds with questions now being raised about it.".Failure to protect the interest of stakeholders, has led to the loss of faith in the entire banking system in India.Plea filed by Subramanian Swamy in Supreme Court.Swamy and Sabharwal have contended that the scheme of the Banking Regulation Act makes the RBI the responsible for bank management, more so in case of public sector banks.
