Urjit Patel has written this in his new book Overdraft – saving the Indian Saver, in which he did not write the name of anyone – but by the time he was talking about the middle of 2018, it was a period when Piyush Goyal got something for the time he was given charge of Finance Minister. This time was between May 2018 to August 2018.

Soft Decisions For Insolvency Cases

Patel wrote in his book that soft decisions were made for insolvency cases in mid-2018 when the finance minister and Urjit Patel were at the same level for most of the work related to matters.
