Madam Sharma is absolutely correct.Such advts. are indeed misleading the public and should be removed. What is more leading companies also release such messages. I was amused by the advertisement of a paint company which says their paints remove viruses.

High time misleading advertisements are not approved by the authorities. more

It is high time Govt. puts its foot down because the public is being taken for a ride by the companies using misleading advertisements. more  
Judiciary and Governments shall not keep quiet on Misleading/ incorrect ADDS since General Public are badly effected both Financially and Mentally . more  
No action has been taken till now by the government and the "The Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI)" is a silent spectator. more
