Reliance Group filed a lawsuit against the National Herald publisher alleging that a National Herald article titled 'Anil Ambani floated Reliance Defence 10 days before Modi announced Rafale deal' has defamatory aspects as it "misleads the general public to believe that undue business favors are being extended to them by the government of the day".

You can file a defamation case on the basis of two types of statements, Libel and Slander. Libel is the defamatory statement in the written form, and Slander is the spoken defamatory statement.
