Sir Osborne Smith was the first Governor of the Reserve Bank of India from 1 April 1935 to 30 June 1937. Since his outlook on policy issues like the exchange rates and interest rates differed with that of the Government, he resigned before the completion of his term of office.

A debt market is a part of the capital market. As the name suggests, a capital market is where trading in financial instruments is conducted to raise capital. Contrary to an equity market, debt instruments like debentures and bonds are traded in debt markets. A debt market is also known as a µfixed income market¶ as debt instruments pay fixed returns. Also, the risk factor is considerably lower, especially for government securities. The advantage of holding debt instruments is that the investor enjoys high liquidity. The Asian financial crisis in the 1990s stressed the importance of a fully active debt market; the lack of which aggravated the crisis. As in the 1980s, the bond market of the United States of America countered the drawback of banking system in relation to the real estate cycle. In most of the Asian countries, though both equity and debt market exist, the equity markets have expanded at a much faster speed than the debt market. Debt markets are now considered an alternative route for financing to banking channels. The most active part of the money market is the call money market (i.e. market for overnight and term money between banks and institutions) and the market for repo transactions. The former is in the form of loans and the latter are sale and buyback agreements - both are obviously not traded. The main traded instruments are Commercial Papers (CPs), Certificates of Deposit (CDs) and Treasury Bills (T-Bills).

The foundations were completed in 1920, and construction was finished in 1924.
