India's one of the biggest online marketplace Snapdeal, is yet again in news for the wrong reasons. According to sources, two AVPs at Snapdeal, Bengaluru, Balaji Hariharan, head of growth and product management, and Hemanth Kota have resigned.

The Gurgaon-headquartered Snapdeal hired Balaji Hariharan from Amazon in February 2015 while Hemnath Kota had been with the company since August 2015.

Flushed with investor capital in the end of 2015, the e-tailer had announced that it would double the employee strength especially at their Bengaluru centre, However, witnessing the current wave of job cuts, sources said the headcount is learnt to be down to about 30-40 people.

Hariharan steered the integration of Uber within Snapdeal's app among other initiatives such as enabling bill payments, flight bookings through the e-tailer. Kota was responsible for solving supply chain and logistics challenges for the company.

Both the executives joined the company at a time when founder and CEO Kunal Bahl had prepared an ambitious growth plan with the launch of its innovation centre in Bengaluru, housing 200 people, as per Snapdeal's website.

In the past few weeks, senior executives like Sandeep Komaravelly, Tony Navin, Abhishek Kumar, and Govind Rajan, CEO of Freecharge, have resigned, adding to troubles at the company. Also Sanpdeal has not been able to raise fresh funds as the investment talks have not been materialized since a long time.

While the e-commerce firm has taken measures such as mass layoffs along with shutting non-core businesses, the founders admitted to having taken several wrong decisions in the past two-three years, previously in a media report.
