The RBI in its release had said, "The financial position of Yes Bank has undergone a steady decline largely due to inability of the bank to raise capital to address potential loan losses and resultant downgrades, triggering invocation of bond covenants by investors and withdrawal of deposits. The bank bas also experienced serious governance issues and practices in recent years which have led to a steady decline of the bank."
