The interviews would be held between December 25 and December 26, sources said, adding that each candidate will have to go through three sub-committees of two members each.
    
The sub-committees have three outside experts. These experts are former Managing Director of State Bank of India (SBI) S Viswanathan, IIM Indore Director Rishikesha T Krishnan and S Panse, former Chairperson and Managing Director of Allahbad Bank, sources said.
     
Besides, other three members of screening committees are Department of Financial Secretary, Additional Secretary and an RBI Deputy Governor.

The final selection of candidates would be made by the appointment board chaired by RBI Governor and it will be based on the weighted average marks given by each sub-committees to ensure objectivity and transparency.
    
Following shortlisting by the high level panel, the names of the candidates would be sent to Finance Minister and subsequently to the Appointments Committee of Cabinet (ACC). In the mean time, the process for vigilance and other necessary clearances would be undertaken.
