India's upper house of parliament has rejected Vijay Mallya's resignation of his seat, saying a letter the embattled tycoon sent from Britain did not conform to "procedures" or carry an original signature.The 60-year-old multimillionaire left India for Britain in March owing more than $1 billion in unpaid loans, and is under investigation by a parliamentary ethics committee.Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari said late Tuesday that the letter was not valid.A spokesman for Mallya declined to respond to the statement, which Indian media said indicated the parliamentary ethics committee intended to expel him rather than allow him to resign.
