The chief spokesman of transport operator SMRT is quitting after five months on the job, a departure seen as unusual as she is not required to serve notice.

Ms Kalai Natarajan, 41, has handed in her resignation and will leave on Monday, she told The Straits Times yesterday. She also confirmed that she will not be serving notice.

Typically, the notice period for senior management is three months.

Sources said a replacement has been found, but SMRT could not be reached for comment.
