In a city infamous for its VIP culture, the identity of a high profile person is often mistaken if he doesn’t appear or pretend to appear like the one. The newly appointed Reserve Bank of India Governor Urjit Patel had one such moment at the Niti Aayog office in the national capital yesterday. But he went through it without a fuss, setting an example for other authorities to follow. The incident, however, left many befuddled.

After taking charge as the RBI governor, Patel’s first official meeting was scheduled to be with the Niti Aayog vice-chairman on Tuesday evening. The Niti Aayog had made necessary arrangements for receiving the RBI Governor at the thinktank’s headquarter in the national capital. There was also a senior official waiting at the reception to receive Patel. However, the official mistook a person getting out of a luxury car around that time for Patel and escorted him upstairs.

Some minutes later Patel arrived and approached the gate alone, carrying his own files. However, a CISF guard at the gate couldn’t recognise him as he was alone, carrying his own files. The guard asked stopped Patel at the gate and asked for his ID card. Patel showed it without any hesitation and he was allowed to enter.

    He set an example. Rules are to be followed but if the people at the top do not follow then what do expect from anyone else.In india, rules are not made for the rich, or the politicians.

      If it was media hero Raghuram Rajan (Ex RBI Governor) then it would have become a big issue. Moreover, Rahul hi (Congress), Kejriwal (AAP) & Sitaram Yechury (CPM) would have blamed Centre and Modi for insulting him and the TV channels would have pla it for a week. All stupids would have joined by now to analyse the same and given their expert comments. Thank God, at least the present Governor is sincerely working without making much noise and publicity. Good results are bound to come inspite of negative opposition.

        A very negative headline to colour a welcome and positive incident.

              absolutely welcome change and this also underscores the fact that Rajan was full of hyperbole which the new man in is iduously trying to avoid. Despite repeated attempts by leftist perverts and media he's avoided them so far which is another good sign

                      Every person carries his or her attribute. What Urjit Patel did was according to his such attribute. Dont see anything out of it.
