In a regulatory filing, the private sector lender said that the re-appointment will be subject to the approval of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and shareholders of the bank. 

"The board of directors of the bank, considered and approved the proposal relating to re-appointment of Amitabh Chaudhry as the managing director and CEO of the bank, for a further period of three years, with effect from 01 January 2022  up to 31 December 2024," the bank said in the filing.
