The government has officially notified the reconstruction scheme for Yes Bank, after it was cleared by the Union Cabinet on March 13 (Friday).
With the scheme coming into effect, the moratorium, or withdrawal limit imposed on Yes Bank depositors, will be lifted at 6 pm on the third working day.
Under the notification, a new four-member board led by veteran banker Prashant Kumar, has been constituted.
