Jitendra Gupta, managing director of PayU India has stepped down from his position in a view to start his own venture, cited ET. Gupta has been leading the digital payments company credit business. According to the sources, he is likely to start his own venture later this year.

Pallav Jain, country head of PayU Finance, which was formerly known as LazyPay, is expected to take over from Gupta.
