RBIThe Reserve Bank will transfer to the Centre its surplus profit of Rs 52,679 crore (Rs 526.79 billion), about 60 per cent more than the amount given last year.

"The Central Board of Directors of the Reserve Bank of India... approved the transfer of surplus amounting to Rs 526.79 billion for the year ended June 30, 2014 to the Government

Last year, the RBI had transfered its Rs 33,010-crore (Rs 330.1 billion) surplus profit to the Centre.
