Interestingly, the shareholders in the bank's Annual General Meeting on September 25, also voted against the reappointment of its statutory auditors, the bank said in a regulatory filing.

The directors who would cease to be directors post the rejection are N. Saiprasad, Gorinka Jaganmohan Rao, Raghuraj Gujjar, K.R. Pradeep, B.K. Manjunath and Y.N. Lakshminarayana Murthy.

Out of the proposed 10 reappointments, Shakti Sinha, Satish Kumar Kalra and Meeta Makhan's directorship was accepted by the shareholders.

In a regulatory filing on September 15, the company said that the mutual due diligence with Clix Capital is "substantially complete", and the parties are in discussions on the next steps.
