Wondering why the yes bank , which used to be one of the leading private bank failed so badly?

Well, there are many reasons behind it. Today we will see of the main reasons why the Yes Bank Failed so badly.

Yes Bank , which was once India’s fifth largest private sector bank gave loans to all the bad companies  ( loss making companies ) , big loans to companies like Jet Airways, DHFL, Cox & Kings, CG Power, Cafe Coffee Day etc.

Here’s a short introduction of the companies to whom Yes Bank gave big loans -:
