New Delhi: The response time for answering the Enforcement Directorate notice to beleaguered industrialist Vijay Mallya ended on Friday. Now, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) will go ahead with the revocation of Mallya’s passport.
MEA had asked why his passport should not be impounded or revoked under section 10(3) (c) of the Passports Act, 1967. The stipulated time given to Mallya ended on Friday 22 April at 4 pm.
Earlier, Mallya had informed the Supreme Court that he cannot disclose his foreign assets.
The big question arising now is that will Mallya be deported, because if he has residency permit then he will get six months time. In this scenario, Mallya will be confined to London and cannot travel.
In case of Mallya’s deportation, he will be brought to India with the special documents issued by the MEA.
