Mr. Raj is one of the famous teachers who has/have come to teach you now.

I'm confused between the two. I think have should come. But here noun is singular so has could also come.

  • A plural noun or noun phrase should follow “one of the”. Please edit the question and change teacher to teachers. If that obviates your question, then delete it. – James Waldby - jwpat7 Mar 24 '13 at 17:54

The subject of the relative clause is who. It stands in place of the famous teachers. That makes it plural, so you need have.
