New Delhi: Raghuram Rajan's three-year tenure as Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor ends on September 4. Considering this, various speculations are being made on a daily basis whether Rajan will be awarded a second term by the present government or not.

In an interaction with media at the Shiv Nadar University on Saturday, Rajan on being asked if he will be given the second term answered that he should instead be questioned if he actually wants to continue.

With this, the Chicago School economist has sent subtle signals that he is not very much gung ho about taking up the job of the RBI governor once again.

But as of now, he seems to be keeping his options widely open.
