The Supreme Court has granted Yoga guru Ramdev and Patanjali Ayurved Ltd MD Balkrishna Acharya a week's time to rectify their alleged contempt after their legal team offered to issue a public apology regarding a misleading advertisements case. The Supreme Court lists the matter on April 23 for further hearing.

Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, representing Ramdev and Balkrishna, stated before a bench of Justices Hima Kohli and Ahsanuddin Amanullah, "I am willing to give a public apology," in response to the allegations.

Ramdev and Balkrishna have tendered an "unconditional and unqualified apology" to the apex court over advertisements released by the firm, which made grand claims about the medicinal effectiveness of its products.

In two separate affidavits filed in the court, Ramdev and Balkrishna have tendered an unqualified apology for the "breach of the statement" recorded in the November 21 last year order of the apex court.

In the November 21, 2023 order, the top court had noted that counsel representing Patanjali Ayurved had assured it that "henceforth there shall not be any violation of any law(s), especially relating to advertising or branding of products manufactured and marketed by it and, further, that no casual statements claiming medicinal efficacy or against any system of medicine will be released to the media in any form".
