Bangalore: Microsoft, the world's largest software maker, is witnessing a churn at the senior level with at least three business unit heads on the verge of leaving the company. Among those currently looking out for new jobs are enterprise partner group head Karan Bajwa; original equipment manufacturers' unit head Rishi Srivastava; and Ranbir Singh, head of public sector business, according to TOI.

The departure of top executive will definitely pinch the Indian arm of the software maker but is unlikely to have long term effects. In a statement, Microsoft neither confirmed nor denied any impending exits. "Microsoft India has a strong leadership team in place with an average tenure of over six years and our attrition levels are under 7 percent — well below the industry average," it said.

In the last five years, Microsoft India has seen three managing directors. Neelam Dhavan, now HP India head, resigned in 2008 while Rajan Anandan left to join Google in 2011.
