Patanjali ayurved fined Rs 10 lakhs for chasing profits by claiming coronil as a cure

The Madras High Court on Thursday banned Patanjali Ayurved Limited and Divya Yog Mandir Trust from trademarking "Coronil" for medicine it developed and promoted as a cure for novel coronavirus.

The court order said that 'there are organisations helping people in this critical period without seeking recognition and it would be appropriate for the defendants to pay costs to them'.The defendants have been asked to pay the fine by August 21.

As per the order, Patanjali Ayurved Limited and Divya Yog Mandir Trust, also owned by Ramdev, will have to jointly pay Rs 5 lakh to Adyar Cancer Institute and Rs 5 lakh to Government Yoga and Naturopathy Medical College and Hospital 'as both these organisations provided treatment free of cost, tradename, patent or design and only on the motto of service'.
