The bank’s board of directors, in its meeting on October 30, had finalised a potential candidate for the post of MD and CEO, based on the recommendation of the Nomination and Remuneration Committee. “As mandated under the extant RBI norms, the bank has submitted an application to the RBI, seeking approval for the appointment of the new MD and CEO of the bank,” it had said in a statment on October 31, adding that it would make the requisite disclosure on receipt of approval from the RBI. IndusInd Bank scrip closed 5.18 per cent higher at ₹1,379.45 apiece on the BSE on Friday.
