Chennai: Patanjali, a company associated with yoga guru Swami Ramdev from the Madras High Court, has suffered a major setback. The court has banned the trademark of Patanjali drug Coronil.
Patanjali claims that coronil is a drug of Kovid-19. It was launched a few days ago.
Justice CV Karthikeyan of Madras High Court issued this interim order on July 30 on the application of Chennai-based company Arudra Engineering Limited.
Arudra Engineering Limited states that ‘Coronil’ is its trademark since 1993. Therefore, no other company can name it.
Arudra Engineering Limited manufactures chemicals and sanitizers, which are used in heavy machinery and containment units.
According to the company, it had registered Coronil-213 SPL and Coronil-92B (Coronil-92B) in 1993. The company claims that it has been continuously renewing the trademark.
The company said in a statement, “At the moment our right to this trademark is valid until 2027”. The company has described this trademark as global.
This company has also stated that its clients are companies like BHEL and Indial Oil.
To prove his claim, the petitioner has also introduced a five-year bill in the court.
The company said in court that the mark of the drug sold by Patanjali is exactly like its company. Products sold may be different but the trademark is the same.
