The Board of Directors of DCB Bank has approved the appointment of Rupa Devi Singh, Independent Director, as Non-Executive Chairman of the Bank. This appointment, which was approved at the Board of Director meeting on January 14, 2022, is in view of the vacancy caused by retirement of Nasser Munjee from that position.

Appointment of Singh as Non-Executive Chairman will be effective from the date of receipt of such RBI approval. According to DCB’s website, Singh has been a non-executive independent director of the Bank from January 22, 2015. She has over 35 years of experience in various sectors – commercial banking, project structuring, infrastructure, etc.
