Private sector HDFC Bank on Monday said the RBI has approved re-appointment of Aditya Puri as managing director of the bank for another two years.

 

"Reserve Bank of India, vide its letter dated October 22, 2018, has accorded its approval to HDFC Bank for re-appointment of Aditya Puri, as MD & CEO of the bank, from November 1, 2018 to October 26, 2020 (i.e. till the date of his attaining age of 70 years)," the bank said in a filing to stock exchanges.
