The Delhi High Court has restrained four and a trust from manufacturing, selling or advertising any goods or services bearing the mark or word Patanjali', the registered trademark of yoga guru Ramdev's company.

The order by Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw came on a plea by Ramdev's company Ayurved Ltd which has contended that the four firms - Karamveer Ayurveda, Dr Zee Biotech, Dhatri, and -  were manufacturing and marketing products similar to its own by infringing its trademark.

also contended before the court that the firms were passing off their products as that of the company and they were claiming to do so under authorisation of the trust, Maharishi Vedic Foundation.

The court noted that has made out a prima facie case for grant of an ex-parte order in its favour restraining the four firms and the trust from infringing its trademark.

While restraining the five defendants from infringing the trademark of Patanjali, the court also issued notice to them seeking their replies to the plea by May 16, the next date of hearing.
