Visa’s India operations are headquartered in Bangalore with an office in Mumbai.

Commenting on the inauguration of the new Visa office in New Delhi, Santanu Mukherjee, Country Manager – South Asia, Visa International Asia Pacific said, “Visa clearly occupies the leadership position in India and over the recent past has set the pace for new product and service development in the Asia Pacific region. In keeping with the buoyancy of the Indian economy, Visa has been playing an active part in the payment industry’s consistent growth rate across all key parameters. The establishment of an office in New Delhi is a key strategic component to further enhance our business in the country. The New Delhi office will manage Visa member bank relationships in north India and provide our member banks and partners with a range of services and technology to enable them to provide superior payment options to their customers.
