Supreme Court Cautions Patanjali Over Misleading Advertisements

The Supreme Court has sounded a warning to Patanjali Ayurved, the company co-founded by Yoga guru Ramdev, regarding its misleading advertising claims.

What Happened? According to a PTI report, the apex court has cautioned Patanjali against making false assertions in its advertisements about its herbal products being treatments for various illnesses.

The court has also served notices to the Union Health Ministry, Ministry of Ayush, and Patanjali Ayurved Ltd, citing allegations of a defamation campaign by Ramdev against vaccination drives and modern medicines.
