Was land allotted to Patanjali at a throwaway price, asks HC

Patanjali Eyes 2-fold rise in revenue at Rs 20000 Cr in FY18

Asking people not to connect Modi with Patanjali, he added: "Modi is not a brand ambassador for Patanjali, he in India's brand ambassador".

Patanjali's desi (Indian) versus foreign products pitch has seen the company capturing sizeable market share.

It was a rather unusual press conference; there were a plethora of Patanjali products on display in a hall that was nearly overflowing with people, some from the media, many from his ayurveda company and others who had just stopped by to see what was going on at the campus at Rafi Marg as his picture was on display at the entrance.

The company is now planning to double the revenue to Rs.21,000 for this fiscal year. A day after the prime minister inaugurated a research institute run by Patanjali Ayurveda in Uttarakhand's Haridwar, Ramdev refused to be drawn into questions on Modi's presence benefiting his brand, saying Modi was leader of all 125 crore Indians.

According to the beliefs of Muslims, cow's urine considered "haram" (forbidden) in Islam and that products of Patanjali were made by using cow urine as a key ingredient therefore it should not be used.

He also quoted that Patanjali will be headed by a Sanyasi after him and there will be absolutely no involvement of any business tycoons. In FY 2016-17, Patanjali Ayurved contributed Rs9,634 crore to its turnover, while Divya Pharmacy that manufactures ayurvedic medicine had clocked Rs870 crore sales. Its personal care brand Keshkanti had clocked sales of Rs 825 crore and herbal soap Rs 574 crore.

"We are working on a business plan and branding strategy to enter the restaurant business by serving nutritious and hygienic food", he said.

Baba Ramdev denied charged that all Patanjali products have cow urine in them and clarified that only five ayurvedic and herbal products have cow urine and it is clearly mentioned in the ingredients list of the products. From around Rs 2,000 crore in 2014-15, the company has managed to grow its revenue exponentially. "Our kacchi ghani mustard oil (sales) is around Rs 522 crore and would grow to Rs 1,000 crore", Baba Ramdev said. "Patanjali ke varshik turnover ko lekar deshbhar me videshi companies me zabardast bechaini hai", he said, smiling.
