The ban has been extended under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, it said. The notification stated that the LTTE's continued violent and disruptive activities are prejudicial to the integrity and sovereignty of India.

The group continues to adopt a strong anti-India posture and also continues to pose a grave threat to the security of Indian nationals, it added.
