Reconstruction Scheme For Yes Bank
Yes Bank Ltd. is a banking company registered under the Companies Act, 1956 and carrying on the business of banking in India since its inception but unfortunately, the rapidly deteriorating financial position of Yes Bank Ltd. relating to liquidity, capital, critical parameters, and the absence of any credible plan for infusion of capital has forced the Reserve Bank of India to take immediate action in public interest and particularly in the interest of the depositors. The Reserve Bank has taken several measures to protect the funds of the depositors. Thus, during the period of the moratorium, the Reserve Bank of India framed a scheme of reconstruction or amalgamation of the Yes Bank.
