ICICI Bank Decides To Postpone AGM By A Month

ICICI Bank Ltd. has decided to postpone its annual general meeting by a month amidst independent enquiry conducted by Justice BN Srikrishna on alleged cases of impropriety against the bank's CEO Chanda Kochhar.

The meeting has been rescheduled to Sept. 12 as against the earlier schedule of Aug.10.

"We wish to update that the change in AGM date and the consequent changes in record dates was necessitated due to the sequencing of general meeting dates within the listed entities of ICICI Group," the bank said in filings to the stock exchanges.

Meanwhile, Kochhar has gone on leave till the completion of an external enquiry into alleged conflict of interest in extending loans to some corporates like Videocon.

Multiple agencies, including the CBI and regulator Sebi, are already probing the alleged lapses involving Kochhar and her family members.

The current tenure of Kochhar, who has been at the helm since 2009 and has been on annual leave for some time now, ends next March.
