RBI lifted its ban from Bandhan Bank

The Reserve bank of India on Tuesday lifted its ban on Bandhan Bank, allowing it to open new branches without prior permission after considering the efforts made by the Bank to comply with the licensing conditions on 25 February. 
In September 2018, RBI had said that Bandhan Bank cannot open new branches without prior approval and ordered the bank to freeze the salary of its chief executive Chandra Shekhar Ghosh over its failure to meet shareholding rules.
The Bank failed to reduce the promoters' stake to 40% from close to 82% within the stipulated three-year time frame of commencing operations.
But considering the efforts made by the Bank to comply with the licensing condition, it has lifted the regulatory restriction on branch opening, subject to the condition that the Bank ensures that atleast 25 % of the total number of 'Banking Outlets' opened during a financial year are opened in unbanked rural centres.
