Rajah Chelliah Passes Away

Padma Vibhushan Rajah Chelliah passes away. Known for his contributions in the fiscal policy after post liberalisation era, Rajah Chelliah was not conferred with any of the government honourary medals until 2007 when Manmohan Singh proposed his name to the committee in recognition of his services. The committee decided for Padma Shri but later Manmohan Singh elevated to Padma Vibhushan owing to senior age of Rajah Chelliah, one step below Bharat Ratna.

Though not conferred with Bharat Ratna, Rajah Chelliah is indeed a Jewel of India for the contributions he had made in the field of Finance and Economics.
