The Supreme Court in India has warned Patanjali Ayurved, a popular Ayurvedic products company, against making false claims in their advertisements about curing diseases.

  • The Drugs and Magic Remedies (Objectionable Advertisements) Act, 1954, regulates drug advertisements and bans promotions of certain magic remedies.
  • It prohibits ads that falsely represent a drug's nature or effectiveness and those promoting drugs for specific diseases listed in the Act.
  • Additionally, it prohibits advertising magic remedies claiming to treat the same diseases.
    • The Act defines "magic remedy" to include talismans, mantras, kavachas (amulets), and any other similar items that claim supernatural or magical properties for curing ailments.
