हाईकोर्ट ने बाबा रामदेव को दिया मुनाफ़े का एक हिस्सा किसानों के साथ बांटन...
Uttarakhand High Court has directed Baba Ramdev to distribute two crore rupees from his profits of Rs 421 crores from Patanjali Divya Pharmacy to the farmers.
Yogguru Baba Ramdev's company Patanjali Divya Pharmacy has given a big blow to the Uttarakhand High Court. The High Court has ordered Baba Ramdev to distribute some part of the profits of Patanjali Divya Pharmacy with local farmers.
According to the news of NDTV, the Uttarakhand Biodiversity Board (UBB) originally gave this order to Patanjali Divya Pharmacy. Patanjali had appealed in the High Court against it, which was rejected by the High Court. The court said that the order of the Board is in accordance with the provisions of the Biodiversity Act - 2002. A bench of Justice Sudhanshu Dhulia said that biological resources are the main components and raw material for the production of Ayurvedic products. Therefore, Divya Pharmacy should give 20 million out of about Rs 421 crores to the farmers.
Earlier, Patanjali had refused to accept UBB's instructions. He had claimed that UBB does not have the right to give such directions. That's why he is not liable to share his profits with the farmers. But the court clearly stated in its decision that India considers the provisions of 'United Nations Convention on Biodiversity'. Therefore, UBB has the right to issue such orders. Because bio-resources are not only national but also the property of communities that produce them.
