Bansal exits Flipkart: Flipkart co-founder Binny Bansal has officially resigned from the board of the e-commerce giant following his recent sale of the remaining stake in the startup, according to media reports. The departure aligns with earlier reports on Binny Bansal's intention to venture into the e-commerce space once again following his fellow co-founder Sachin Bansal, who exited Flipkart a few years ago to pursue a fintech venture called Navi.

According to reports, Binny Bansal expressed pride in the achievements of the Flipkart Group over the past 16 years and affirmed the company's robust position with a strong leadership team. He stated, "With this confidence, I have decided to step aside, knowing the company is in capable hands. I wish the team the best as they continue to transform experiences for customers, and I remain a strong supporter of the business."
