Will Never Sell My Shares In Yes Bank, Says Rana Kapoor 

Yes Bank Ltd.'s founder and chief executive officer Rana Kapoor, who has been asked by the Reserve Bank of India to quit the post by January, today said that he will not sell his shares in the bank even after demitting office.

In a series of tweets, he talked about never selling his shares, and bequeathing them to his daughters.

Rana Kapoor along with his brother-in-law Ashok Kapur, had founded the bank in 2004. The Reserve Bank of India had recently asked Rana Kapoor to quit the post by January 2019.
