Yes Bank had informed the stock market in November 2019 that Rana had fully exited the bank’s board, but this crisis did not arise overnight. Even if Rana is now saying what is happening, he does not have an idea. But in the raid on his residence, many evidence is coming to know about the ED’s arrival. In such a manner as the investigation is going on, Rana’s problems are believed to increase.
Moody’s reduced rating
After the ban of the Reserve Bank, the rating agencies also gave a shock to Yes Bank. Moody’s issued a statement, lowering the rating of the bank, calling RBI’s ban negative. At the same time, ICRA also scissored the ratings on Yes Bank’s Tier-II and Tier-I bonds. It is worth noting that in view of the cash crisis of the bank, RBI has given permission to withdraw only 50 thousand rupees by April 3. However, it has also been clarified that customers can withdraw up to Rs 5 lakh in emergency.
Yes drowned due to loan
In the midst of the discussion about how Yes, which had been growing rapidly, was caught in such a deep crisis, it is also being believed that bad loans have a big role to play behind this predicament of the bank. The bank has given loans to companies such as L&FS, Jet Airways, Cox & Kings, CG Power, Dewan Housing and Cafe Coffee Day, whose record of financial transactions was not clear. The NPAs of all these companies reached record levels.
Significantly, the country’s largest bank SBI has shown interest in investing in Yes Bank. On the other hand, the government has assured the customers of Yes Bank that their money will not be allowed to sink. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has said that she herself is in touch with RBI. At the same time, the customers of the bank are restless despite the assurances of the government.
