New Delhi: A Delhi court on Friday granted permission to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to get a regular passport for the next three years. 

The Congress leader had approached the court for a no-objection certificate (NOC) after he surrendered his diplomatic passport following his disqualification as an MP.

The court has allowed him to have a normal passport for 3 years instead of 10 years. 

Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday moved to Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court seeking no objection to the issuance of a fresh ordinary passport to him. 

After being disqualified from the Lok Sabha, Rahul surrendered his diplomatic passport in March this year. He is now applying for a new one.

Following the conviction in the 2019 defamation case, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has been disqualified as the Lok Sabha member.

The Lok Sabha Secretariat announced his constituency, Wayanad, is vacant. The Election Commission will soon announce a special election for the seat.
