Guwahati: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev is once again embroiled in controversy as Madras High Court has restrained his ayurvedic venture, Patanjali, from using the trademark ‘Coronil’.
According to reports, Justice C V Karthikeyan passed the interim order on Friday that is valid till July 30 on the plea of a Chennai-based company called Arudra Engineering Pvt Lts, which claimed that ‘Coronil’ is a trademark owned by it since 1993.
The company argued that even though the product sold by them is different from Patanjali, but use of identical trademarks still amounts to infringement of intellectual property rights.
According to the Chennai based company, it registered ‘Coronil-213 SPL’ and ‘Coronil-92B’ in 1993 and has been diligently renewing the trademark since then. The company claims that their trademark is valid till 2027.
