OB Bureau

Mumbai: The troubles keep mounting for Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Ayurved Ltd.

Facing a contempt case for publishing misleading advertisements in violation of Drugs and Magic Remedies (Objectionable Advertisements) Act, 1954 despite giving an undertaking to the Supreme Court last November, the self-styled yoga guru’s company now stares at a hefty financial penalty.

Bombay High Court has directed Patanjali to deposit a Rs 50 lakh for alleged breach of an August 2023 interim order, which had restrained the company from selling its camphor products.

Hearing an alleged infringement of trademark case filed by Mangalam Organics Ltd., the high court noted that Patanjali filed an affidavit on July 8 admitting to breaching the injunction order in June this year.

“Such persistent breach of the injunction order dated 30th August 2023 by Defendant No. 1 (Patanjali) cannot be tolerated by this Court. It would be appropriate to direct Patanjali to deposit a sum of Rs 50 lakh prior to passing of order for contempt/breach of the injunction order,” Justice Riyaz Chagla said.
