The Exit Control List refers to those people who are prohibited from leaving Pakistan.
The decision comes hours after the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said the former spy chief would be probed by a Court of Inquiry for views attributed to him in the book Spy Chronicles: RAW, ISI and the Illusion of Peace.
Earlier in the day, Durrani arrived at the Pakistan Army's General Headquarters after being summoned to explain his position on the book.
Further, it has been reported that formal court inquiry headed by a serving lieutenant general had been ordered to probe the matter in detail.
"Lt Gen Asad Durrani, being called in GHQ on 28th May 18. Will be asked to explain his position on views attributed to him in book 'Spy Chronicles'. Attribution is taken as a violation of Military Code of Conduct applicable to all serving and retired military personnel," Major General Asif Ghafoor had posted.
While Dulat was present at the event but his co-author Durrani failed to come as he reportedly could not get the Indian visa.
