Uttarakhand Govt cancels 14 Patanjali licences

New Delhi, April 30, 2024.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday reprimanded the Uttarakhand State Licensing Authority for its “inaction” in the misleading advertisement case against Patanjali Ayurved. The court stated that the authority “tried to wash away everything”. It also pulled up the Baba Ramdev-promoted company, noting it was “not complying” with its orders.

The Patanjali produced an e-copy of the public apology when the court asked for original records. In response, the bench said, “This is not compliance”. “I am raising my hands in this case; enough of this non-compliance of our orders,” the bench of Justices Hima Kohli and Ahsanuddin Amanullah said.
