On August 23, this year, the Supreme court had issued a notice on a petition filed by the Indian Medical Association (IMA) alleging that Ramdev’s campaign against the vaccination drive of Patanjali ayurved, a firm founded by yoga guru Ramdev, along with Patanjali, Union Health Ministry and AYUSH Ministry have also issued notices.

The supreme court has recently asked Patanjali ayurveda to immediately stop such false and misleading advertisements.  A bench comprising Justices ahsanuddin amanullah and Prashant Kumar Mishra, while hearing a petition by the Indian Medical Association observed that such violations very seriously.  During the brief hearing, the bench asked Patanjali ayurveda not to publish misleading claims and statements against modern medical practices.
