NEW DELHI: Yes Bank, India's fourth largest private sector bank, Saturday said it has appointed Brahm Dutt as non-executive part-time chairman to the board.

"The Reserve Bank of India, pursuant to the provisions of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949, and basis Mr Brahm Dutt's outstanding credentials and experience, has approved his appointment up till July 4, 2020," Yes Bank said in a regulatory filing.

Dutt has been on the board of the bank since July 2013 as an independent director and has contributed to almost all the sub-committees of the board over the past 5.5 years, it added. He is currently also the Chair of the Nomination and Remuneration Committee.
