Vodafone Idea's Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Vishant Vora has resigned. Vora has decided to return home to the US, the company said in an e-mail response.
"VIL recently completed the world's largest network integration setting up a future ready network built on 5G architecture. Post consolidation, Vi GIGAnet is now the strongest and the fastest 4G network as per various third party agencies," the company said.
As CTO, the company said, Vora played a significant role in accomplishing this exercise over the last two years."He has now decided to return home to the US. We wish him the best for the future," it added.
Vora played a key role in the telco's integration with Idea Cellular. During this period in India, the top executive said that Vishant has been a prominent member of the evolution of the telecom industry.
“He has been a part of many technology transformations, first in Vodafone India, and then in Vodafone Idea in the last two years, and he has led from the front, the integration of our technology estates – one of the biggest and most complex integrations attempted anywhere in the world,” said the mail.
The development has come at a time when the integration between Aditya Birla group’s Idea Cellular and Vodafone UK’s India arm, is in full throttle.
Recently, shareholders of Vodafone Idea approved a slew of proposals including raising borrowing powers of the company, as also issuance of securities of up to Rs.15,000 crore.
