Viral V Acharya, a professor of economics at New York University, has been appointed by government as one of the central bank's deputy governors for a term of three years, according to a statement on Wednesday. 

The Reserve Bank of India had a vacancy for Deputy Governor after Urjit Patel was promoted to Governor earlier this year.
