Dhanalakshmi Bank board to decide on public issue

With the persistent slump in the capital market, the board meeting of Dhanalakshmi Bank scheduled for Saturday will decide on the Rs. 40-crore public issue slated for next month. “The bank has taken full cognisance of the dramatic changes which have overtaken the capital markets since the public issue exercise was initiated seven months ago,” the bank Chairman, Mr. T.
