He has been appointed for a period of three years or till the age of 65 years, whichever is earlier. The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet has approved Kaushik's appointment.

Kaushik will come in the place of S Raman, who retired from the post of a whole-time member in early September after completing his five year term.

Prior to this appointment, Kaushik was Chairman and Managing Director of India Infrastructure Finance Company Ltd (IIFCL), a Government owned company.
