    With the RBI clarifying its stand, well-known names in the Indian banking sector including HDFC Bank MD Aditya Puri and IndusInd Bank CEO Romesh Sobti will have to retire after completing their current term and won’t be eligible for an extension. Puri and Sobti are set to retire in March and October 2020 respectively. 
    In 2014, RBI had raised the maximum age from 65 to 70 years for MD, CEO and whole time director in private banks.
