The parties have executed the definitive agreements, the company said.
The deal terms have also reportedly been tweaked after the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) raised concerns over four clauses in the agreement.
“Axis Bank and Max Life will shortly approach the respective regulatory authorities, with revised applications for their consideration and approval. The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals,” the bank said.
