Markets regulator Sebi on Wednesday ordered attachment of bank accounts as well as share and mut­ual fund holdings of Rana Kapoor (pictured), former MD and CEO of YES Bank, to recover dues of over Rs 1 crore. The decision has been taken after Kapoor failed to pay the fine imposed on him.

Sebi, in September 2020, had levied a fine of Rs 1 crore on Kapoor for not making disclosures regarding a transaction of  Morgan Credit, which was an unlisted promoter entity of Yes Bank.

By not disclosing about the transaction to YES Bank's board of directors, Kapoor created an opaque layer between him and stakeholders and violated the provision of the LODR (Listing Obligations and Dislcosure Requirements) Regulation, Sebi had said in the order.

Further, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) issued a demand notice to Kapoor in February this year, although he did not pay any dues.

The pending dues, totalling Rs 1.04 crore, include an initial fine of Rs 1 crore and an interest of Rs 4.56 lakh and a recovery cost of Rs 1,000, the attachment notice showed on Wednesday.

In the notice, Sebi has asked banks, depositories and mutual funds not to allow any debit from the accounts of Kapoor. However, credits have been permitted.

Further, the regulator has directed the banks to attach all accounts, including lockers, held by the defaulter.
