High Court upholds Ban by FDA to Step up Body Growth Formula Get Tall Television Advertisement

High Court upholds Ban by FDA to Step up Body Growth Formula Get Tall Television Advertisement

The product in question is a drug named 'Step Up Body Growth Formula', manufactured in Indore, Madhya Pradesh.

FDA had asked TV channels to stop telecasting the advertisement, bringing to their notice provisions of the Drugs and Magical Remedies (Objectionable Advertisements) Act, 1954, which prohibits advertisements of drugs for diagnosis or treatment of diseases.

Bombay High Court upheld state Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) ban on a television advertisement on a 'body growth formula powder'.
The advertisement had suggested that using the powder can increase height at any stage.
The advertisement further claimed that the medicine was formulated using rare herbs procured from the Himalayas and African jungles.
advertisement has claimed that "years of research has led to the discovery that development of the human body can take place at any age

The court was hearing a petition filed by GMT Teleshopping Pvt Ltd, which had opposed the FDA action.

FDA told that license was issued to the company for a medicine, which was helpful in body development, and not for the growth of physical stature of a person.

On Indian Television media, one can find many such advertisements, which claim anything
Examples –

Buy a locket become rich

Do something and become rich or get girl friend

Contact Baba and get rid of black magic, get a desires wife or girlfriend or get rid of enemies

Are you black use this cream and become Gora that is fair

FDA needs to ban all such advertisements as India is limited democracy in every aspect thus our freedom is also limited

Only exception is Politicians they have no limits they can do anything and say anything.
