Yes Bank was started by Rana Kapoor and Ashoka Kapoor in 2004. It’s headquarter is in Mumbai and the MD or CEO of Yes Bank is Ronit Gill. When Yes Bank came into existence, Its main Moto was to increase his customers by giving more and more loans and by giving them more interest on their deposit than the any of the other banks.
At a time when most banks were struggling with rising bad loans, YES Bank had managed to keep a check on its non-performing assets (NPAs). However, following the AQR review, the bank reported a divergence of Rs4,176 crore ($580 million) in its gross NPAs for the year ended March 2016. In the next financial year, as well after RBI’s audit, the bank reported an even larger loan divergence of Rs6,355 crore, which was three times the reported amount.
HERE THERE ARE THE NAME OF THE BIGGEST DEFAULTERS OF YES BANK:

5•) CAFE COFFEE DAY.
6•) RELIANCE GROUP.
7•) ESSEL COMPANIES.

₹11,159 crore of rupees of the bank got dunked due to the NPAs. For increasing its customer base, the Bank opened 1120 branches and 1450 ATMs in all over the country and started giving interest of 6% on their deposit .Since the total deposited money of the bank was 2.27 lakh crore while the total asset worth 3.80 lakh crore but in the background NPAs of the bank started increasing that was 6,335 crore in 2017 and 11,159 crore in 2019, i.e; approx double.

Does YES BANK is going to Recover?
YES BANK paid a huge price, market punished them for the wrong doings and we know how it has been a wealth destroyer in such a short time.
Now to regain the glory, it will take time. It should, as it rightly does now, infuse additional capital to meet any loan asset slippages, fully provide, be transparent and get the market’s confidence , all of which is not easy.
So, yes it is possible but it is a long road to glory.
