Yes Bank, which holds about 25 per cent stake in Dish TV, has been pushing for a board reconstitution, including the removal of Goel, Narang and other members, citing corporate governance issues. 

In June this year, the company held an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) where the shareholders had rejected the proposal for reappointment of Goel as managing director and Dua as a whole-time director of the company, post which they had to vacate their office. 

In reciprocation last month, Dish Tv had agreed to add a couple of Yes Bank nominees to the board of the company. 

Continuing the year-long fight, the company has filed a petition in the Bombay High Court to direct the company to conduct a special shareholder meeting. A division bench of the high court will hear the petition on Tuesday on whether Dish TV should conduct an extraordinary general meeting (EGM).
