  1. Since the induction of the qualified professional independent directors in August 2014 , the true figure of NPA disclosure started.It seems that the resignation has taken place under mysterious circumstances as stated in the article.The reasons for resignation donot seem personal.This sudden resignation of the qualified professional independent directors before completion of their tenure needs to be looked into by RBI.This shakes the faith of the FII’s , who are a huge shareholder in this bank.
