Mumbai, April 9 (IANS) Lending major Axis Bank said its board has accepted the request of the company’s Managing Director and CEO Shikha Sharma to be re-appointed for a shorter duration of time, subject to regulatory approval.
According to a BSE filing, Sharma requested to be on a revised re-appointed period from June 1, 2018 up to December 31, 2018. “The board has accepted her request, subject to the approval of the RBI (Reserve Bank of India),” the bank said in the BSE filing.
