Recently, a message regarding Central government giving Rs 1,000 under the so-called ‘Corona Sahayata Yojana’, was circulating on social media. The message also included a link which users had to click on to get the claimed amount.
However, The Fact Check Unit of Press Information Bureau (PIB) has clarified that the central government is not giving Rs1000 under any of the schemes.
दावा: कोरोना सहायता योजना WCHO की तरफ से 1000 ₹ सहायता राशि सभी को दिया जा रहा हैें। फॉर्म भरें और 1000 ₹ प्राप्त करें। #PIBFactCheck: केंद्र सरकार द्वारा ऐसी कोई भी योजना नहीं चलाई जा रही। मैसेज में किया गया दावा व दिया गया लिंक फ़र्ज़ी है।
