"We would like to inform that Rentala Chandrashekhar, Non-Executive, Independent Director has tendered his resignation from the board of directors of YES Bank on 19 November, 2018 with immediate effect," the bank had said in a filing.

The bank cited personal reasons for Chandrashekhar's resignation.

On 14 November, the bank's non-executive chairman Ashok Chawla had resigned as his name figured in a CBI chargesheet filed in the Aircel-Maxis case.

Another independent director Vasant Gujarathi too had tendered his resignation on the same day over audit committee performance issues.

The Reserve Bank has asked the private sector lender to find a replacement for its founder MD and CEO by 31 January.
