Mumbai: Financial sector doyen Deepak Parekh was re-appointed as non-executive director on the Board of country's largest mortgage lender HDFC, though 22.64 per cent of the shareholders voted against his continuation.

HDFC Chairman Parekh secured approval of 77.36 per cent shareholders at the annual general meeting (AGM) of the company held here on Monday.

Parekh has been at the helm of HDFC for close to 30 years.
