"As part of this process, Yes Bank has received the risk assessment Report for 2017-2018. The report observes NIL divergences in the bank's asset classification and provisioning from the RBI norms," it said.

Experts say that with this report, the major concerns of investors have been addressed, especially considering the past few months of speculation. Brokerage Motilal Oswal Securities said the RBI report has removed any challenges that the new management would otherwise have to deal with to align with the Central Bank's asset quality standards.

Investors are now expecting normalcy in operations to return once the replacement for Rana Kapoor joins in as the new CEO before 1 March 2019.
