Yes Bank, which holds an about 25% stake in Dish TV, has been pushing for a board reconstitution, citing corporate governance issues.

"As a largest shareholder, it looks like Yes Bank has voted against some of the proposals," said Shriram Subramanian, managing director of Bengaluru-based InGovern Research Services, a corporate governance advisory firm.

"Now, the ball is in Yes Bank's court. It should take it up to the next stage of appointing new directors and provide direction to the company."

Yes Bank did not immediately respond to Reuters' request for comment.
