In the order by court of Haridwar’s additional district magistrate Lalit Narain Mishra, the company was found guilty of releasing misleading advertisements by selling certain products with its labels even though they were being manufactured by some other firm.

Patanjali Ayurved is currently eyeing at doubling it’s revenues from the current Rs 5,000 crore to almost Rs 10,000 crore by the next financial year.

Citing Section 52 (misbranding) and Section 53 (misleading advertisement) of the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006 as well as Section 23.1 (5) of Food Safety and Standard (Packaging and Labelling Regulations, 2011) Act, it ordered Patanjali to pay the fine within a month. It also directed the district food safety department to “take appropriate action if there is no improvement in the products in future.”

A case against the company was filed at the ADM’s court in November 2012 after samples of products, including honey, salt, mustard oil, jam and besan (gram flour) picked up for sampling on August 16, 2012, allegedly failed quality tests.

The tests were conducted in the only FSSAI certified drugs and food testing laboratory at Uttarakhand. The case was going till date. The order regarding the fine which was imposed on Patanjali Ayurved  was given by the court on 1st of December but became public yesterday.
