Licences of 14 Patanjali products suspended, Uttarakhand State Licensing Authority tells Supreme Court

Amidst the trial for misleading advertisements, the Uttarakhand State Licensing Authority on Monday informed the Supreme Court that it has suspended the licences of 14 products sold by the Baba Ramdev-owned Patanjali Ayurved and Divya Pharmacy.

The licences were suspended on April 15 by the Uttarakhand State Licensing Authority, according to the court document. The Supreme Court of India has rapped Ramdev and Patanjali Managing Director Balkrishna for not complying with its directives in an ongoing lawsuit to stop misleading advertisements of some of his traditional ayurvedic medicines.

The state government body shared the information while apologising to the court after it was pulled up for not taking action against the Patanjali.

The list of 14 products whose licences were suspended included Ramdev’s traditional medicines for asthma, bronchitis and diabetes, Reuters reported.

The State Licensing Authority also filed a criminal complaint against Patanjali for violating the Drugs and Magic Remedies Objectionable Advertisements Act.

The actions came after the apex court ordered the current and previous officers of the Uttarakhand licensing authority to file detailed affidavits explaining why they did not take action against Patanjali under the Drugs and Magic Remedies Objectionable Advertisements Act for misleading advertisements.
