The officials said that Goyal's statement has been recorded under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) at the agency's zonal office in Mumbai.

Justice Suresh Kait said no interim relief can be granted to Jet Airways Founder Naresh Goyal at this stage, and added that he may deposit Rs 18,000 crore guarantee if he wants to travel to a foreign country now.
The airline operated last in April this year after it ran out cash, owing over Rs 8,500 crore to the State Bank of India and 25 other financial creditors.
Jet Airways stocks hit an intra-day low of Rs 32.25 per share, falling by a massive 52 per cent. At 1.41 p.m, Jet's stocks were trading at Rs 38.05 per share, down Rs 30.25 or 44.29 per cent.
In 2017, the Mumbai-Delhi Jet Airways flight had made the emergency landing after a note stating that there were hijackers and a bomb on board was found in the plane's washroom.
The disclosure came after Naresh Goyal and his wife Anita Goyal were stopped by immigration authorities at Mumbai airport, minutes before their aircraft was about to take off for London via Dubai.
The couple was to travel by Dubai-bound Emirates flight EK 507 when the immigration authority denied them permission to fly, they said.

The Civil Aviation Ministry decided to allocate the vacant slots at the airports in the national capital and Mumbai to other carriers.
Jet Airways on April 17 stopped operations, leaving over 22,000 employees in the lurch. Of these around 1,300 are pilots and over 2,000 are cabin crew.
