It further said that the stock split will augment affordability of the stock and increase participation of retail and individual investors, thereby improving liquidity in the bank's equity.

The proposal is now subject to approval from the shareholders at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) scheduled to be held on 12 June and, the stock split will take place three to four months following the AGM.

The AGM will also take a final decision on the proposed dividend of Rs 15 per share that was recommended by the board on 20 April.

Previously in 2011, the country's largest private sector bank split it shares in 1:5 ratio, splitting shares worth Rs 10 to 5 shares of Rs 2 each.
