SBI has also been given the green signal to choose members of the consortium, sources told the news agency.

Yes Bank has been struggling to find investors to execute its plan to raise funds worth $2 billion despite several efforts. The bank has been in trouble since its founder and former chief executive officer (CEO) Rana Kapoor was not given an extension by the Reserve Bank of India in 2018 owing to corporate governance issues and under-reporting of bad loans. Kapoor’s term as the bank’s CEO had ended in January 2019.

Representatives for Yes Bank and SBI have not yet responded to BloombergQuint’s requests for comment.

Yes Bank had in September 2019 announced a $2 billion capital raising plan.

Shares of Yes Bank jumped 17 percent following the report, while SBI’s shares fell 5 percent.
