Forget the headlines about tensions with India’s government: Raghuram Rajan is likely to stay on as India’s central bank governor after his term ends in September.

That’s the view of most economists in a Bloomberg survey on Thursday following criticism from several government officials over Rajan’s characterization of India’s economic growth in a recent media interview. Thirteen of 15 economists said he’d get an extension, one said it’s unlikely and another said it could go either way.
