Supreme Court tells Patanjali that apologies in newspapers for misleading ads must be big, visible

While Patanjali has now published printed apologies in 67 newspapers to express regret over their conduct, the Court today asked whether such apologies were prominent in size to be spotted easily.

Was it of the same size as your earlier ads?” Justice Kohli asked.

No milord .. It costs a lot.. Lakhs of rupees,” replied Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi, representing Patanjali Ayurved’s founders, Baba Ramdev and Acharya Balkrishna.

To examine the size of the apologies, the Bench ordered that copies of the printed apologies be submitted by Patanjali to the Court.

Please cut out the ads and then supply it to us. Do not enlarge them and supply it to us. We want to see the actual size. This is our direction… We want to see that when you issue an (apology) ad, it does not mean we have to see it by a microscope. It is not meant to be on papers, but also read,” Justice Kohli said.
