    SBI to pick up 49 pc stake in Yes Bank; RBI wants strategic investor to stay for at least 3 yrs

    On Friday, the RBI announced a draft scheme of reconstruction for cash-starved Yes Bank.

    In its draft ''Yes Bank Ltd. Reconstruction Scheme, 2020'', RBI said the strategic investor bank will have to pick up 49 per cent stake and it cannot reduce holding to below 26 per cent before three years from the date of capital infusion.

    The draft came a day after the RBI imposed a moratorium on Yes Bank, restricting withdrawals to Rs 50,000 per depositor till April 3. The RBI also superseded the board of the private sector lender, which is now being headed by former deputy managing director and CFO of SBI Prashant Kumar.
