A message claiming that the Central Government is distributing free laptops to students keeping in view the transition to online education amidst the COVID-19 pandemic is going viral on social media

The message asserted that the education of students has been badly affected since schools and colleges have been shut due to COVID-19 pandemic. It also has a link from where students can get a laptop

Therefore, the central government is providing free laptops to all the students so that they can complete their education and also give exams with the help of the Internet”

However, PIB claims that the government has not made such an announcement and the viral message turned out to be fake.
