New Delhi: Yes Bank shares nosedived almost 14% on Monday even after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) gave its nod to raise capital. At 12:30 pm, shares of Yes Bank were trading at 42 down 13.93% on BSE. The stock had touched its 52-week low at 41.50 on Monday morning. On NSE, the stock was down 13.85%.

The stock was the biggest laggard on both the equity benchmark indices.

"Further to our communication dated September 25, 2019 on the captioned subject, the Bank is pleased to inform you that it has received acknowledgment from the Reserve Bank of India to go ahead with the proposed increase in its authorized share capital. The Bank shall now seek necessary shareholders' consent and proceed expeditiously with its capital raise," Yes Bank said in a regulatory filing.

The bank got approval to raise its authorised share capital to 1,100 crore from 800 crore.
