IDFC FIRST Bank MD and CEO V Vaidyanathan has gifted 9 lakh shares of the bank held by him, worth over 3.95 crore, to five individuals, including his trainer, househelp and driver, to help them purchase homes.

These five people are unrelated to the top official of the private sector bank.

V Vaidyanathan, managing director and chief executive officer, has gifted 9,00,000 equity shares of IDFC FIRST Bank held by him on February 21, 2022, the bank said in a regulatory filing on Monday.

He has gifted 3 lakh shares to his trainer Ramesh Raju; 2 lakh shares each to househelp Pranjal Narvekar and driver Algarsamy C Munapar; and 1 lakh shares each to office support staff Deepak Pathare and househelp Santosh Jogale.

Calculated at Monday's closing price of 43.90 apiece on BSE, the value of the 9 lakh shares gifted by Vaidyanathan comes out to be 3,95,10,000.
