New Delhi:: The government has refused one-year visa to Taslima Nasreen, instead the controversial author has been given permission to stay in India for two months.

The 51-year-old writer had applied for a resident permit and the Home Ministry granted her the same type of visa but only for two months beginning August 1.

A verification process of Nasreen’s visa application has also been initiated by the government and the two-month visa has been given pending a decision on the longer-term visa.
