New Delhi/IBNS: The Centre has shortlisted four candidates for the post of Chief Economic Advisor (CEA) to succeed K V Subramanian, media reports said.

The development comes ahead of the presentation of Union Budget and Economic Survey.

According to Business Today TV, these names include two women candidates — Pami Dua, Professor, Delhi School of Economics, and Poonam Gupta, Director General, National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER). The other names are - Principal Economic Adviser Sanjeev Sanyal and former part-time member of the PM’s Economic Advisory Council Anantha Nageswaran, sources told on Tuesday.

The names have been shortlisted by NK Singh, Chairman of 15th Finance Commission. 

The Centre had invited applications after CEA KV Subramanian announced return to academia at the end of his three-year tenure on December 17, 2021.

Subramanian had assumed office on December 7, 2018, almost five months after his predecessor Arvind Subramanian had left the role.

He also served as a professor at the Indian School of Business (ISB) and was also awarded "Professor of the Year" by ISB in 2019.
