"I am pleased to welcome Bobby (Abhijit), Shripad, Usha and, most recently, Vidit to our Board. They each bring a unique perspective and I believe they will add significant strategic value to Navi as we continue to grow. These appointments further reinforce our commitment to setting high standards in corporate governance," Bansal said.

The tech company is heading towards their IPO at the moment. It filed a Draft Red Herring Prospectus (DRHP) on March 12. Navi plans to raise INR 3,350 crore through the IPO through a fresh issue of shares.
