Uttarakhand authority cancels licenses of 14 Patanjali products

| @@indiablooms | 30 Apr 2024, 01:46 am

New Delhi/IBNS: The Uttarakhand government, in an affidavit, Monday suspended licenses of 14 Patanjali products with immediate effect.

In an affidavit filed in the Supreme Court, the licensing body said that it had suspended licenses of 14 products manufactured by Patanjali's Divya Pharmacy in connection with the misleading advertisements case.

The banned products include Divya Pharmacy's Drishti Eye drop, Swasari Gold, Swasari Vati, Bronchom, Swasari Pravahi, Swasari Avaleh, Mukta Vati Extra Power, Lipidom, Bp Grit, Madhugrit, Madhunashini Vati Extra Power, Livamrit Advance, Livogrit and Eyegrit Gold.

The Supreme Court will hear the matter related to the apology published by Yoga guru Ramdev and his associate Acharya Balkrishna on Tuesday.

The apex court earlier rapped yoga guru Ramdev over the case pertaining to the misleading advertisements by Patanjali Ayurved, which had claimed it as a cure for many diseases including Covid-19.

During the last hearing on April 23, the top court had pulled up Patanjali for not displaying their apology "prominently" in newspapers.

The court had asked if the size of the apology put out in newspapers by Patanjali was similar to full-page advertisements for its products. Patanjali had said it had published an apology in 67 newspapers, asserting it had the utmost respect for the court and their mistakes would not be repeated.

After the court's order, Patanjali published another apology in newspapers, which was bigger than the previous apology.

Though the court said it respects Ramdev for his contribution to yoga, it questioned the two founders as to why they shot down other forms of medicines giving stress on Ayurveda.
