Yes Bank share price: Shares of India’s private sector lender Yes Bank tumbled on Thursday morning, after former bureaucrat Ashok Chawla resigned as non-executive chairman of the bank. Yes Bank share price tumbled by more than 9.05% to hit the day’s low of Rs 202.25. PTI reported sources as saying that Mr Chawla offered to quit as controversy was being generated on his continuance on the board of directors following his name appearing in a CBI charge-sheet in the Aircel-Maxis case.
“Yes Bank announces that Shri Ashok Chawla, Non-Executive Independent Part-Time Chairman, has tendered his resignation from the Bank’s Board, with immediate effect, mentioning that during the current transition period, the Bank would need a Chairman who could devote more time and attention,” Yes Bank said in a regulatory filing.
