Outgoing CEO of HDFC Bank, Aditya Puri told CNBC-TV18 that there were likely to be some exits in the wake of the leadership change at the bank. He did not see that much of a problem as the bank already had a strong team in place and was well-positioned to replace the likely exits.

“I am not worried, but could there be exits. Yes. Are we in position of having a replacement within for any exits that happens other than Shahi….the answer would be yes,”Puri said.

He said that he was the public face of the organization, but all decisions are taken collectively.

“I am first among equals, we have got our plan setup, each one knows about it and we have a very strong team,” he said.

Also, Puri said that the organization took good care of his employees.

“I was the first one to come out and say there will be no cut in implements, there will be no cut in bonus, there will be no cut in promotions and I am saying this for this year as well because I know we will achieve our targets,” he said.

Puri said his dream was that HDFC Bank becomes the biggest bank around
