Mumbai, Mar 17 (PTI) The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Monday said the resolution framework for Yes Bank is underway as planned and depositors can withdraw their money from the evening of March 18.
The RBI governor, Shaktikanta Das, also assured to intervene with additional liquidity if there is a need.
Defending the steps taken on Yes Bank and expressing confidence in getting the intended outcomes, Das said the identity of the bank will be retained as a private sector lender.
