monetary penalty on ICICI bank

https://www.rbi.org.in/Scripts/BS_PressReleaseDisplay.aspx?prid=51519

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has, by an order dated May 03, 2021, imposed a monetary penalty of ₹3 Crore (Rupees Three Crore only) on ICICI Bank Ltd. (the bank) for contravention of certain directions issued by RBI contained in Master Circular on ‘Prudential Norms for Classification, Valuation and Operation of Investment Portfolio by Banks’ dated July 01, 2015. This penalty has been imposed in exercise of powers vested in RBI under the provisions of section 47 A (1) (c) read with section 46 (4) (i) of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949 (the Act).

It is not clear exactly what the violation was. Wish RBI could be more clearer when it releases such press releases so that the others banks, compliance officers, public, investors etc. know what is the violation for which the penalty is being levied.
