Kishore Biyani steps down as MD of Future Retail

Future group Chairman Kishore Biyani has resigned as Managing Director of Future Retail Ltd in view  of the realignment of the group’s business.

As per the deal, both the companies had proposed a demerger of the retail business of Future Retail to Bharti Retail and separation of the infrastructure business of Bharti Retail into Future Retail. 

However, Biyani would continue to hold office as non executive director of Future Retail Ltd.
