In October 2018, Chanda Kochhar resigned from the ICICI bank in the wake of allegations against her. Kochhar also relinquished office from the board of directors of the bank's subsidiaries.

The board then decided to appoint Sandeep Bakhshi as Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer for a period of five years.
