A strained relation, energy fight
All over the 16 years of Sure Financial institution’s adventure from inception till its cave in, Ashok Kapur’s circle of relatives has had a visibly strained dating with Rana Kapoor. Now not lengthy after Kapur’s demise, the members of the family between the Kapoors and Kapurs grew to become bitter and the variations turned into public. It suffices to mention that the consider Kapur circle of relatives as soon as had on Rana Kapoor had vanished.
Issues got here to a head when Rana Kapoor refused to present a board seat to Shagun Gogia in Sure Financial institution, the daughter of Ashok Kapur and Madhu Kapur (sister of Rana Kapoor’s spouse, Bindu Kapoor).

Kapur couldn’t have bought greater than 25 p.c of her conserving because the RBI’s three-year lock-in for buyers kicked in.
The irony of the occasions is hanging. Rana Kapoor as soon as referred to as his conserving within the financial institution ‘diamonds ceaselessly’ handiest to promote it later whilst Ashok Kapur’s circle of relatives hung on till the closing second. The Kapurs bought a part of their shareholding handiest after the possession modified palms on the finish of a dramatic rescue deal. In comparison with what the stocks would have fetched right through the giddy classes of Sure Financial institution, the Kapurs had been pressured to promote their last stocks at a throwaway worth.
