Dr. Batra’s Homeopathy Family Clinic: The advertisement’s claims, “We have provided successful treatments for more than ten lakh patients in 142 cities for hairfall, skin disorder, allergy, breathlessness, gastric disorder, women’s issues, high sugar levels, joint aches, obesity, sexual problems, thyroid and other health problems for people of all ages”, were not substantiated with supporting evidence, and are misleading by exaggeration says the Advertising Standards Council of India in its newest report!
Also, specific to the claim related to successful treatment of sexual problems, the advertisement is in breach of the law as it violated The Drugs & Magic Remedies Act. In addition, specific to the claims related to successful treatment for Diabetes (high sugar levels) and obesity, the advertisement is in breach of the law as it violated The Drugs & Magic Remedies Act.
Dr. Batra’s false ridiculous and dangerous claims have yet again been in the news. The Advertising Standards Council of India has upheld yet another complaint made against this amazing Doctor who never gives up trying to fool more consumers with print and television advertisements! He regularly and recklessly ignores the rules made by the Drugs & Magic Remedies Act which warns you not to fool consumers by telling them that you can cure diabetes, sexual problems etc.
He also sells products online for curing baldness, obesity, hair fall and many other ailments. Complaints against him are increasing and the consumer courts have already made this firm pay up money to several consumers who won their cases against him.
But when will the more gullible consumers learn to avoid the traps set by this unwholesome eerie Clinic and its silly, horrendous claims?!
