Violation of Court order: Bombay HC fines Patanjali Rs 50 lakhs

Violation of Court order: Bombay HC fines Patanjali Rs 50 lakhs

Mumbai: Over violation of an ad-interim order, the Bombay High Court ordered Patanjali Ayurved Ltd to deposit Rs 50 lakh. The high court bench of Justice RI Chagla issued the order after the court found that the company breached an order restraining it from selling its camphor products, Business Standard reported.

The court said that it cannot tolerate Patanjali's persistent breach of the injunction order it issued.

It was a trademark infringement case, which the court was hearing after an interim application was filed by Mangalam Organics on the case. Mangalam had alleged passing off and trademark infringement concerning its camphor products against Patanjali.

The court had initially restrained Patanjali from selling its camphor products on August 30, 2023.

Through the interim application, Managalam Organics informed the court that Patanjali violated the 2023 order, but Patanjali had offered an unconditional apology and promised to comply with the court's orders.

Patanjali had submitted this through an affidavit, and it admitted in the affidavit that it had supplied camphor products worth Rs 49 lakh to distributors till June 24, and products worth Rs 25 lakh are still with the distributors. However, their sale has been halted.

According to Mangalam Organic's submission, Patanjali continued sales of products after June 24, and they were available on Patanjali's website on July 8. Mangalam pointed out that Patanjali did not disclose this in their affidavit.

The court noted Patanjali's admission to the supply of camphor products post-injunction and also acknowledged the claim of continued sales after June 24.
