In April 2020, last year the Reserve Bank of India gave in-principle consent to IIHL (India Infradebt Limited) allowing it to acquire a larger percentage of the bank’s share so that it can be able to take up 26% as its highest stake.

In this year, IndusInd Bank has experienced a decline of 5% in its stock while the Nifty 50 index, which is considered as the benchmark of India’s stock market, went up by 3% indicating an underperformance.

But there are some positive signs too – According to reports IndusInd International Holding (IIHL), the promoter company of IndusInd Bank wants to raise their stakes from existing 16% up to 26% within next fortnight i.e., in two weeks’ time. Reserve Bank of India has already given permission for this move by Hinduja Brother’s investment arm IIHL. To achieve that they will have to pump more than INR 11,500 crore into the bank.
