No deduction in allowances of Central Government employees, PIB Fact Check busts fake news
Fact Check Unit of Press Information Bureau has today clarified in a tweet that Central Government is not going to deduct allowances of Central Government Employees. The tweet was a fact check on a media report speculating that Government was planning such a move in response to the corona virus crisis.
In another post, Fact Check has busted a rumour on Facebook that blamed ICMR for allegedly buying COVID-19 testing kits and a significantly inflated price when cheaper options were available. ICMR has since clarified that it has fixed rate brackets for the kits and is open to any company that can provide the kits at a still cheaper rate.
