Since Dutt is already a part of the bank and understands various aspects of the system in a better way, it would be good to have him as the chairman, sources said.

The bank's spokesperson could not be reached for comments.

Dutt, a retired bureaucrat, is currently an independent director on the bank's board, which has eight members.

The other board members are MD&CEO Rana Kapoor, Lt General Mukesh Sabharwal, Subhash Kalia, Ajai Kumar, Pratima Sheorey, Uttam Agarwal and TS Vijayan.

Vijayan -- former LIC and IRDAI chief -- was inducted into the board only recently along with Agarwal who is a chartered accountant with expertise in taxation, finance and restructuring.

Besides, the bank has to recommend name/s for MD&CEO post to the RBI as Kapoor has been denied extension post-31 January, 2019 by the central bank.

As per sources, RBI has flagged issues related to corporate governance as well as under-reporting of bad loans.
