The Indian Supreme Court has fined the soft drinks groups, PepsiCo and Coca-Cola, along with 10 other companies, for painting advertisements on the eco-fragile rockfaces along a stretch of highway in the Manali-Rhotang Pass in the Himalayas.

The court ordered the two drinks companies to deposit Rup200,000 ($4,000). The other companies, which included Nestle India, were told to pay Rup100,000 each towards the cost of repairing the damage.

"No approval for use of government property for commercial purposes has been obtained by the advertisers who had used a crude process for painting their advertisements and caused irreparable damage to the fragile ecosystem," a panel convened to assess the damage told the court. PepsiCo and Coca-Cola India said they would both comply with the court's ruling.


Companies: PepsiCo, Nestle
