Airtel terminates Pallab Mitra’s employment citing code of conduct violations

airtel

Airtel, a couple of days ago, informed all of its employees that Pallab Mitra, its Vice President and Head of Alliances, had been asked to leave the company with immediate effect, for “violation of the Company’s Code of Conduct.” While not specifying details of the violation of the code of conduct, the company said that a specific incident was brought to light by a whistleblower, and “investigations thereafter substantiated the allegations”. A copy of the email sent to employees was shared with MediaNama by a source.

When contacted, Airtel confirmed this development, saying that “The Company’s Code of Conduct is of paramount importance and it follows a policy of ‘zero tolerance’ in the event of any violation of the same .” The company, however, did not comment on the specific details of the violation of the code of conduct. When contacted by MediaNama, Mitra declined to comment.

Mitra had joined Airtel in 2015 as Head of Alliances, Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine to Machine (M2M). This was his second stint at Airtel, wherein in the past, he had been Head of M-Commerce and mobile payments before he had left to join Tata Docomo. Prior to returning to Airtel, Mitra had been Chief Operating Officer of Ozone Networks, a company providing WiFi in India, across restaurant and shop chains in 23 major cities.

MediaNama’s mission is to help build a digital ecosystem which is open, fair, global and competitive.
