With this, the new board also came to force with Prashant Kumar formally becoming the MD and CEO of Yes Bank.

This fund raising will be over and above the Rs 10,000 crore cleared in 7 February, 2020 board meeting.

The board at its meeting has approved subject to receipt of requisite approvals, raising of funds for an additional amount aggregating up to Rs 5,000 crore, Yes Bank said in a regulatory filing.

The fund may be raised in one or more tranches by "way of issuance of securities but not limited to through a qualified institutions placement/ public issue, rights issue, global depository receipts, American depository receipts, foreign currency convertible bonds or any other permissible mode," it said.

So, in aggregate the fund raising cannot exceed Rs 15,000 crore, it added.
