New Delhi: Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates visited the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) office in Mumbai, where he held wide-ranging discussions with Governor Shaktikanta Das.
In a tweet, RBI said that Gates went to its office during his visit to India, where he is exploring business opportunities in sectors like health and education.
Gates had recently indicated that he wants to do business-related activities in India.
