Supreme Court will hear the case of contempt against Patanjali Ayurved over the publication of advertisements claiming medical cures. Yog Guru Baba Ramdev and the company's managing director Balkrishna are likely to be presented before the court on Tuesday.

During the previous hearing, the Supreme Court harshly criticized Patanjali for not following its orders and ordered Ramdev and the managing director of the firm, Balkrishna, to appear in person before the court today.

Following the hearing, Patanjali issued an unqualified apology to the court, explaining that the company's goal was to encourage the people of this nation to use its products to live healthier lives.

As per the directive, the top court on February 27 asked the company to stop all types of advertisements of its medicines that have misleading information. SC also criticized the Center for doing nothing and implied that they were just sitting there staring blankly.

The case started in November of last year when Patanjali Ayurved was warned by the Supreme Court not to make "false" and "misleading" statements about its medications in ads during a hearing on a petition brought by the Indian Medical Association (IMA). IMA highlighted that the advertisements are allegedly projecting the allopathy doctors in a poor light, saying that they are misleading the general public.
