NEW DELHI: Shares of IndusInd Bank surged 5 per cent in Monday's trade on hopes the promoters could increase their stake in the bank if the suggestions by the RBI's special committee report are implemented.

The Internal Working Group has recommended a staggered increase in primary ownership, allowing bank promoters to hold 26 per cent over 15 years from the current threshold of 15 per cent.

It has also spoken in favour of allowing industrial houses as bank promoters with legislative changes to the banking regulation act.
