In 2017, the RBI found that the Yes Bank had given out a lot of loans which had not been paid back. Plus the Bank has been suffering major losses. The RBI gave Yes Bank time to collect the money. Ravneet Gill the MD & CEO of Yes Bank kept trying to collect the money back but it failed.The Yes Bank account holders continued to make large withdrawals which put the Bank at risk. This is why the RBI has superseded the Yes Bank Board and and taken control of the Bank.
