The Head of Business Development for Uber's Indian arm has quit just four months after he joined the San Francisco based company's Indian arm.

Mahesh Bhalla's Linkedin page confirmed that he has left the American app based ride-sharing service Uber in August.

Bhalla had joined Uber in May from QwikCilver, a gifting card solutions company which is backed by online shopping giant Amazon and Russian telecom major Sistema. Bhalla had been president of QwikCilver for two years. Before he had worked at Samsung and Dell.

Bhalla had worked at Dell for over 10 years where he was the architect of the American computer manufacturer's consumer strategy.

Bhalla is the first big executive to exit Uber since the company started building a corporate team in India.

Uber is currently valued at $62 billion and in July 2015, the company committed to invest $1 billion in India. India is one of of Uber's most important markets and its CEO Travis Kalanick has said that India could surpass either the US or China.

According to the Economic Times, Uber hasn't made any comment on Bhalla's exit. Uber India is currently headed by Amit Jain who was appointed as the country head for India in 2015.
