The other three members of MPC will be appointed by the Central government, on the recommendations of a Search-cum-Selection Committee, which will be headed by the Cabinet Secretary. These three members will be experts in the field of economics or banking or finance or monetary policy and will be appointed for a period of 4 years and shall not be eligible for re-appointment.

The meetings of the MPC shall be held at least 4 times a year and it shall publicise its decisions after each such meeting. (RKS)
