How things started?

It was started a year back when Yes Bank found guilty in breaching of regulatory guidelines and confidentiality beaches. Bank was not able to raise
capital in last few years which leads to potential loan losses. The bank has faced various serious governance issues and practices. The NPA increased Rs 3,277 crore in 2018-19. Because of this issue government has appointed Mr. R Gandhi, former Deputy Governor of RBI at the Board of Yes Bank.

Bank has also represented false information with RBI in which it claims that bank is in touch with various investors which will provide funds to bank but in reality there was no such concrete proposal. Bank was also facing continuous withdrawal by customers against deposits. These are some major factors due to which Central Bank took a bold step.
