Facebook’s India Head Kirthiga Reddy to Step Down

The head of Facebook in India has said she is stepping down days after the country banned differential pricing for data, blocking the company’s ambitious Free Basics scheme.

Kirthiga Reddy said she was stepping down to head to the US but the fact that the social networking giant had not announced a successor ahead hinted that the decision was not widely expected.

Facebook shut down Free Basics in India this week after the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) announced its move on Monday.
