A local court in Haridwar has fined Ramdev's Patanjali Ayurved's five production units of Rs 11 lakh. The court found out that the company was "misbranding and putting up misleading advertisements" of their products. Additional District Magistrate (ADM) Lalit Narayan Mishra's court has ordered the company to pay the fine within a month.
"Patanjali Ayurved was found guilty of misbranding as the products being shown by the company as produced at its own units were in fact manufactured somewhere else", the court said.
A case was filed in the court against the company in 2012 by the District Food Safety Department. Samples of mustard oil, salt, pineapple jam, besan and honey produced by Patanjali failed quality tests at Rudrapur laboratory due to which case was filed.
