Yes Bank's non-executive Chairman Ashok Chawla resigns
New Delhi : Yes Bank on Wednesday said that its non-executive independent part-time Chairman Ashok Chawla has resigned with immediate effect.
"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," the private lender said in a BSE filing.
