Patanjali Directed by Bombay HC To Deposit Rs 50 Lakh for Breach of Order

Mumbai: The Bombay High Court directed Patanjali Ayurved to deposit Rs 50 lakh for the alleged breach of its interim order restraining the company from selling its camphor products. The Bombay High Court passed this interim order in relation to a trademark infringement case filed by Mangalam Organics Ltd in August 2023.

A single bench of Bombay High Court, Justice R I Chagla on July 8 noted that Patanjali, in an affidavit submitted in June, admitted breach of the earlier order granting injunction against sale of the impugned camphor products.

“Such persistent breach of the injunction order dated 30th August 2023 by defendant no. 1 (Patanjali) cannot be tolerated by this court,” Justice Chagla said in the order.

The bench directed Patanjali to deposit a sum of Rs 50 lakh prior to the passing of an order for contempt/breach of the injunction order.

The HC posted the matter for further hearing on July 19.

Mangalam Organics had filed a case against Patanjali Ayurved, alleging copyright infringement of their camphor products. It later approached the High Court claiming Patanjali was in breach of the interim order as it continued selling the camphor products.
