In 2014, Kotak Bank acquired ING Vysya Bank in a deal valued at 15,000 crore (US$2.4 billion). With the merger, total employment will jump to almost 40,000, and the count of branches reached 1261.[8] Post the merger, ING Group, which controlled ING Vysya Bank, will own a 7% share in Kotak Mahindra Bank.[9]
