Gandhi in his around 12-year stint in the firm has represented Bharti Airtel in several important cases which includes interconnection usage charges, various mergers and acquisitions, increasing foreign direct investment limit in the company to 100 per cent etc.
NEW DELHI: Bharti Airtel’s chief regulatory officer Ravi Gandhi has decided to step down from the position, considered crucial given the telco’s ongoing turmoil related to the adjusted gross revenue (AGR) issue that the telco is facing after a recent Supreme Court ruling. Bharti Airtel owes over Rs 35,500 crore in AGR-related dues to the telecom department.

A person familiar with the matter said Gandhi is serving his notice period and will leave early March. An Airtel spokesperson confirmed the development but didn't provide details.

Gandhi, who had joined Airtel in 2008, has been looking after the regulatory and policy functions for both India and South Asia. Prior to that, he served Reliance Communications as a vice president for almost 11 months. He also served the Indian government for 15 years and held various positions at the DoT, as per his LinkedIn profile.
