Yes Bank held its sixteenth annual general meeting (AGM) of Yes Bank on Thursday, 10 September 2020.

He further said that Moody's upgraded the bank's rating to B3 with stable outlook.

Addressing investor queries on whether the bank was going to be merged with State Bank of India (SBI) eventually, Mehta said that no such plans were afoot. He added that neither the bank nor any authority had discussed such a proposal as far as he knew.

"The new board and the management remains firm in its resolve to build an institution which has highest standards of governance, strong risk processes, financially strong, technologically powered to deliver best value to our customers," the chairman added.
