The bank, however, did not disclose the names of the shortlisted candidates for the top post, it said in a filing to the stock exchanges.
The Reserve Bank has asked the private sector lender to find replacement of Kapoor, who will continue as the MD and CEO till January 31.
“Pursuant to the recommendations of Search & Selection Committee (S&SC) and Nomination and Remuneration Committee (NRC), the Board of Directors of the bank at its meeting on Wednesday has finalised names of potential candidates for the position of MD and CEO,” Yes Bank added.
It further said as mandated under the extant RBI norms, the board will submit an application to the central bank on Thursday, seeking approval for the appointment of the new MD and CEO.
While the private sector lender did not disclose the names of potential candidates, it said after RBI’s approval, it will duly make the requisite disclosures to the stock exchanges.
In the recent past, Yes Bank has seen a spate of resignations, including that of Chairman Ashok Chawla.
According to sources, Chawla resigned as controversy erupted over his continuation on the board even after his name appeared in a CBI charge sheet in the Aircel-Maxis case.
