A local court in Haridwar slapped Ramdev’s Patanjali Ayurved’s 5 production units with a fine of Rs 11 lakh.
The court had found “misbranding and putting up misleading advertisements” of their products.
Lalit Narayan Mishra, Additional district Magistrate chaired the court on Thursday asked the company to pay off the fine within the period of one month.
Patanjali Ayurved was found guilty by the court of misbranding as the products shown in its advertisements were shown to have been produced by the company whereas they were being produced somewhere else.
A case had been filed in the Haridwar court against the company in 2012 by the District Food Safety Department after the failing of quality tests by certain products such as salt,mustard oil,honey,pineapple jam, besan at the Rudrapur factory.
