Furthermore these talks are only in exploratory stages and various possible methods are being discussed including infusion of fresh capital. Reportedly it is also being discussed if vijay will invest in his personal capacity of if Paytm will do it as part of a consortium. Presently RBI norms state that any acquisition of shareholding/voting rights of 5% or more will be subject to obtaining prior approval from the RBI and the deal will also have to receive a regulatory nod from Reserve Bank of india (RBI).



Earlier rana Kapoor had pledged his entire stake in the bank and in Morgan Credits to raise Rs 1,500 crore from Nippon Life Asset Management.
