Yes Bank Promoter Rana Kapoor, Two Entities Sell 2.16 Per Cent Stake for Rs 510 Crore.
Gill said the new investor/s will be either a strategic partner like a tech company, or a financial investor or a deep-pocketed family office. A combination of the two is most likely to enter the bank soon, he said, choosing not to disclose the exact targets or timelines.
The exercise will result in the new investor/s picking up stakes above the regulatory cap and the RBI will have to take a call on a "non-conventional" investor coming on board, he had said.
