Sengupta has also led Google’s investment in Indian startups such as Dunzo, a hyperlocal task service, and Glance, a lock screen platform, as well as Dailyhunt, local language news and app.
Sengupta’s departure comes at a time when Google’s digital payments service Pay has effectively reached more than 23 countries.
The search giant reported plans to spend up to $10 billion in India over the next 5-7 years last year. The money will be used to help Indians gain access to the internet in their own language, according to Google. User, tech, agriculture, small and medium businesses, and education are among the domains within which the Mountain View-based tech giant can develop new technologies.
