The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has opposed the creation of a $20-billion sovereign wealth fund, for acquisition of energy assets overseas, out of forex reserves and wants the government to create the corpus for it from the Budget. A GoM headed by finance minister Pranab Mukherjee on Thursday discussed possible ways of creating a fund on the lines of ones that exit in countries like China.
