According to sources Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) accused FabIndia of using its trademark ‘khadi’ illegally and demanded Rs 525 crore compensation in a legal notice. Meanwhile after KVIC moved the Bombay High Court over the issue on June 13, FabIndia, an apparel and home furnishings store, has now given an undertaking that it won’t be using the word ‘khadi’ in current or future products.



Moreover and if they do use the word, they will intimate KVIC about the same in advance, FabIndia counsel Janak Dwarkadas told the High Court. Accordingly FabIndia will also file its response to KVIC’s petition within four weeks, as per Justice SJ Kathawala’s directive. Meanwhile according to an unnamed lawyer quoted in a report, “Now, since the company has agreed not to use the term ‘Khadi’, the dispute about damage and compensation will commence.”

Previously KVIC had also issued a notice to FabIndia in 2017, saying, "It is an illegal act and, in other words, amounts to indulging in unfair trade practice." Furthermore KVIC had also argued in earlier hearings at the Bombay High Court that FabIndia had continued to misuse their trademark to sell their garments despite communication from KVIC, including the legal notice, asking them not to do so. Recently a FabIndia spokesperson had denied these allegations and called them ‘baseless’ and said that any legal action by the KVIC will be defended by them 'vigorously'.
