“The Search & Selection Committee and the Board of Directors are fully committed to expeditiously completing the said process within the current stipulated timelines of the RBI,” it added.
Yes Bank also said it has submitted its application to the RBI for their approval on appointment of two senior leaders of the bank as Executive Directors.
