Facebook India's MD, Kirthiga Reddy has stepped down from her position. In a Facebook Post, Reddy mentioned that she will exit in the next 6-12 months and relocate to the USA.
"When my family relocated to India, we knew that we would move back to the US some day. It's a bittersweet moment to share that the return timeframe is coming up in the next 6-12 months. Our two daughters start high school and middle school this coming year - which serves as a natural transition point to make this move back," Reddy says in the post.
She further mentions that she has begun to explore opportunities at Facebook in Menlo Park .
Reddy's stepping down comes a day after Facebook shut down 'Free Basics' in India following an order by TRAI.
Free Basics was offered in India in partnership with Reliance Communications and was earlier known as Internet.org.
