New Delhi: Modern technology has its own vices. In the age of information, it is very important to know and differentiate between correct and incorrect information.
Lately, a viral post is doing rounds on social media platforms stating that the Modi government will deposit Rs 1 lakh to all women account holders in their bank under the mahila swarozgar yojana.
Busting the truth behind the viral post, Press Information Bureau (PIB) has stated that the government has not made any such announcement wherein it will deposit the above mentioned amount in the bank account of women. This news is a fake news that is going around in the social media.
PIB has tweeted:
दावा: केंद्र सरकार महिला स्वरोजगार योजना के तहत सभी महिलाओं को उनके बैंक खाते में 1 लाख रुपए दे रही है।#PIBFactCheck: यह दावा फर्जी है। केंद्र सरकार द्वारा महिला स्वरोजगार जैसी कोई योजना नहीं चलाई जा रही है। pic.twitter.com/wzmFGv4qAU
