Authorities restrict travel for Mallya

Indian authorities have moved to restrict international travel for embattled Force India supremo Vijay Mallya.

Amid ongoing action relating to his ailing airline Kingfisher, a Mumbai court said the former billionaire can no longer leave India unless he submits a detailed itinerary 48 hours in advance.

The Economic Times also said the action brought on behalf of the tax department means Mallya will have to provide two references for any international travel.

"This order is a significant one," the tax department's lawyer is quoted as saying, and "sends the right message in such cases that court orders cannot be taken lightly and reinforces that no one is above law."

There are 20 grands prix on the 2015 F1 calendar scheduled between March and November.
