The ED had claimed that Mr. Mallya abused the procurements of Foreign Exchange Regulation Act (FERA) in masterminding trusts to publicize his alcohol items abroad more than 10 years back.

The organization needed to address Mr. Mallya regarding an agreement marked in December 1995 with London-based firm Benetton Formula Ltd for advancement of the Kingfisher brand abroad.

Mr. Mallya had supposedly paid 200,000 dollars to the British firm for showing the Kingfisher logo in Formula One World Championships in London and some European nations in 1996, 1997 and 1998.

The cash was purportedly paid without earlier support from the RBI infringing upon FERA standards.
