The move is in line with related laws and set to protect the legitimate rights of depositors and other clients, according to a joint statement by the People's Bank of China and the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission.

A special team will be set up to take over the operation management of the joint-equity commercial bank in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, while its businesses will be entrusted to China Construction Bank.

The bank's businesses will continue as usual after the takeover, the statement said.
