New Delhi : Britain on Wednesday informed India about their restrictions to deport liquor barron Vijay Mallya, who is wanted in India for allegedly not paying loan of at least a billion dollar.

UK mentioned that as per their lawslaws, it is not possible to send Vijay Mallya back to India, instead acknowledging the seriousness of the issue they highlighted another way for the same motive.

"The UK Government has informed us that under the 1971 Immigration Act, the UK does not require an individual to hold a valid passport in order to remain in the UK if they have extant leave to remain as long as their passport was valid when leave to remain or enter the UK was conferred," the ministry of external affairs said in a statement.

Vijay Mallya's passport was cancelled by the Indian government last month and had formally requested London government to deport Mr Mallya.
