Posted On: 26 APR 2020

Fact Check Unit of Press Information Bureau has today clarified in a tweet that Central Government is not mulling a reduction in retirement age of Central Government employees. The tweet was a response to an article printed on a web portal which claimed that the Government of India is likely  to reduce the retirement age to 50.

In another tweet PIB Fact Check today busted a fake news doing the rounds on WhatsApp that claimed Government is going to bring an Act which will require all salaried persons to deposit 18%. The tweet clarified that Government is considering introduction of no such law. The tweet also advised people not to forward unverified information.

A fact check was performed by PIB Assam about a news published in Manipur claiming the District Hospital in Tamenglong was suffering from a lack of infrastructure and equipment amidst the coronavirus crisis. The State Health Department had earlier rebutted the claim made in the article.
