K. G. Ambegaokar was the fifth Governor of the Reserve Bank of India from 14 January 1957 to 28 February 1957. He was a member of the Indian Civil Service, and served as Finance Secretary before his appointment as Deputy Governor of the RBI.[1] On the resignation of B Rama Rau he took over as the Governor. His tenure was the third-shortest (45 days) after B. N. Adarkar (42) and Amitav Ghosh (20).[1] Compared to the latter two Governors Ambegaonkar's signature as RBI Governor does not appear on any Indian Rupee note,[1] but his signature as Finance Secretary appeared on the second, third, and fourth Rupee one notes issued after independence.[2]
