Yes Bank received shareholders' approval to increase authorised share capital of the bank to 1,100 crore from 800 crore.

At the Extraordinary General Meeting, the cash-starved private lender also received shareholders' nod to raise up to 10,000 crore via issuance of equity shares or other convertible securities.

Earlier this week, Yes Bank appointed Anshu Jain-headed global investment bank Cantor Fitzgerald and two domestic entities for its fundraising plans to raise $2 billion.

Other merchant bankers appointed by the capital-starved lender include IDFC Securities and Ambit Capital.

In January, Yes Bank had rejected Erwin Singh Braich's $1.2 billion investment offer. On Friday, the Yes Bank stock on NSE closed 0.39% at 38.7.
