"RBI Governor has assured that there will be no loss to any Yes Bank depositor," she said, adding that the steps taken to take control of the bank is in interest of depositors, bank and the economy.

"I want to assure every depositor's money is safe, and I'm in constant touch with RBI," Sitharaman said, adding she was herself monitoring the situation for a couple of months.

She assured the resolution will be found at the earliest and RBI and government are working together on this.

The Minister said she will speak to RBI Governor to see depositors don't face any cash crunch and the priority is safety of the depositors' money and can't give details of the plan.
