Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Thursday made announcements related to Patanjali's earnings over the past year during a press briefing in Haridwar, saying that the numbers would make multinational companies fret.

Ramdev provided a detailed information on how the top selling products of the company had fared and said that the turnover of the company was Rs 10, 561 crore in the previous fiscal year. Patanjali plans to double its turnover this year, Ramdev said.

He re-emphasised that Patanjali's main aim was charity and introduced a new business policy of "Prosperity for Charity" for the ayurveda company.

Here are the important things Ramdev said at the press conference:
