After the rejection of Facebook’s Free Basics initiative in India, the social network’s managing director in the country decided to step down. Kirthiga Reddy who was the first employee of the social network in India will be heading back to the United States over the next six to 12 months after starting the growth of Facebook India six years ago.

Free Basics, which covers 38 countries and connects more than 19 million users, wasbanned as the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India ruled to prevent Internet providers from charging users with different rates for accessing different content. The ruling enforces the rejection of Facebook’s free Internet program, which started out as Internet.org.
