YES Bank, which has exposures to Anil Ambani's Reliance group and Essel group companies, has started making provisions for loans given to both entities. The provisioning began after rating agencies downgraded debt instruments of both groups.
YES Bank has an exposure of Rs 13,000 crore to Reliance group entities and another Rs 3,300 crore to Essel group companies, according to analysts. Though the bank has adequate collateral in terms of shares pledged by promoters of the two groups, YES Bank investors are concerned about the bank's exposure.
A source said several companies of the Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (ADAG) are doing well and the group is taking steps to repay banks. ADAG sold its electricity distribution business to Adani last year to lower its debt. It is also in the process of selling stakes in its mutual fund and general insurance arms. YES Bank's exposure to the Reliance group is almost 37 per cent of the bank's tier
