Indian employees affected by Meta Global layoffs, top executive asked to leave


The third round of Meta (formerly Facebook) job cuts that affected 6,000 employees globally has affected many employees in India, including senior executives.

According to reports, India Marketing Director Avinash Pant, Media Partnerships Director Saket Jha Saurabh and Meta India Director Amrita Mukherjee are among those who have been laid off in India.

Moneycontrol first reported about Mukherjee, who was the legal head of Hotstar before joining Meta, has been asked to leave.

The sources also revealed that the global layoffs have affected employees in marketing, administration, HR and other departments in India.

The company did not immediately comment on the latest India layoffs.

Surbhi Prakash, Business Engineer at Meta, posted on LinkedIn after she was asked to leave.

Prakash wrote, “Sad it ended but glad it did. The anxiety is finally over.”

The latest job cut round was across all levels in Meta.

Earlier, all the vertical teams of Meta India were impacted by layoffs.

Meta conducted a new round of layoffs on Wednesday that was set to affect around 6,000 employees globally.

These job cuts were part of the company’s so-called “year of efficiency”, in which Meta is being restructured to cut costs.

The third round of layoffs most affected Meta’s business departments globally.

Meta founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in March that the company would cut 10,000 jobs in two rounds of layoffs in late April and late May.

Meta had eliminated 11,000 rolls in November last year. In total, around 21,000 people have lost their jobs over the social network across all departments.

The tech giant last month cut about 4,000 of the planned 10,000 positions, bringing the potential cut to nearly 6,000 positions.
