Previously in response to the notice given by the state’s AYUSH department, Patanjali has said that he has never claimed to make corona medicines, but he has cured corona patients with the medicines that have been made. The court has issued a notice to the Assistant Solicitor General of the Central Government.

Recently, the launch of Coronil took place in the presence of yoga guru Baba Ramdev and Acharya Balakrishna. On Tuesday, a PIL by Udham Singh Nagar advocate Mani Kumar was heard in the bench of Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan and Justice RC Khulbe. It is said that according to the purpose for which the license was issued by the department, immunity boosters, cough and fever medicines were made. Patanjali still maintains both his claim and medicine.
The petition said that Baba Ramdev and his associate Acharya Balkrishna launched the coronil drug manufactured by Divya Formshi Company of Patanjali Yogpeeth in Haridwar last Tuesday to get rid of the coronavirus. On June 23, Patanjali Ayurved claimed to make Corona medicine in association with Nimes University of Rajasthan.
According to the government’s guidelines, the medicines made by taking the permission have been cured by Corona patients. The notice issued by the Department of AYUSH has been answered.
The ministry said that a license has not been obtained from Patanjali to manufacture corona medicines. At the same time, the Ayush Department of Uttarakhand had also said that a license to make immunity boosters was taken by Patanjali Ayurved. On Wednesday, the Uttarakhand AYUSH department sent a notice to Divya Pharmacy, ordering the pharmacy to immediately stop the promotion of corona kits and modify the label. The notice was asked to reply within seven days.
