India's new finance minister faces tough challenges
An daunting task awaits the person who will replace Pranab Mukherjee, who has resigned as India's finance minister.
The country is suffering from slowing growth, creeping inflation and a rupee that has lost a significant amount of ground to the US dollar in recent months.
Mr Mukherjee stepped down from his cabinet post so that he can be a candidate in next month's presidential election.
Rajiv Biswas from IHS Global Insight told the BBC's Asia Business Report what he thinks should be at the top of the agenda for India's next finance minister.
