Raghuram Rajan will depart as the governor of the Reserve Bank of India next month, marking the end of a three-year stint for the former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund.
Much has been written about his performance, with some praising his efforts to encourage banks to better recognize their bad debts while others lamenting the lack of sufficient stimulus to boost Asia's third-largest economy.
But what does Rajan think about his performance? He told CNBC TV18 that he managed to achieve 90- to 95 percent of his targets, noting his work in achieving economic stability and implementing reforms to stabilize financial markets.
"There are some things that remain unfinished, but my sense is 90 to 95 percent of what I wanted to do...are done," Rajan told CNBC TV18 in an interview.
"Everything I wanted to do was structured for a three-year horizon," he added.
In retrospect, Rajan said that his immediate objective when he first took up the mantle was to stabilize the economy, followed by creating reforms to build a more resilient market.
