SKS Trusts, the single-largest shareholder in SKS Microfinance headed by Biksham Gujja, a close aide of Akula, had written a letter to the company last week to induct Akula on the board of India's only listed microlender.

"The company states that under its Articles of Association, no shareholder has any right to nominate a director," SKS Microfinance said in a statement.
