As the investigation into the Yes Bank crisis progresses, the CBI has alleged that Yes Bank issued loans worth Rs 3,700 crore to DHFL in 2017-18 without any securities or mortgage.

In its FIR, the investigating agency claimed that in 2018-19, Rana Kapoor , who was Promoter Director and CEO of Yes Bank at the time, “entered into a criminal conspiracy” with Kapil Wadhawan, the Promoter Director of DHFL.

The CBI has alleged that Kapoor extended financial assistance to DHFL “in lieu of substantial undue benefit to himself and his family members”.

To make this happen, when Yes Bank allegedly issued the Rs 3,700 crore loan to DHFL, DHFL simultaneously paid a kickback of Rs 600 crore to a company owned by Rana Kapoor’s wife and three daughters.

“M/s DOIT Urban Ventures (lndia) Private Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of M/s RAB Enterprises (lndia) Private Limited in which Mrs. Bindu Kapoor, wife of Sh Rana Kapoor is a director and 100% shareholder. Furthermore, the daughters of Sh Rana Kapoor namely Ms. Roshini Kapoor, Ms.Radha Kapoor Khanna and Ms. Raakhe Kapoor Tandon are 100% shareholders of Mis DOIT Urban Ventures (lndia) Private limited through M/s Morgan Credits Private Limited.”

In 2017-18, Yes Bank issued a second tranche of the loan to DHFL, amounting to Rs 750 crore, and simultaneously, DHFL again allegedly gave Rs 1.60 crore to DOIT Urban Ventures (India) Pvt Ltd.
