FACT-CHECK: NO LOCKDOWN ON SEPTEMBER 25th

With rumours floating around since the last couple of days of a probable Lockdown in India from 25th September, Press Information Bureau (PIB) conducted a fact check of this to be a FAKE NEWS.

Via WhatsApp groups, a notification in the name of NDMA (National Disaster Management Authority) was circulating ordering lockdown from September, 25.

PIB fact-checking it said, a claim: “An order purportedly issued by National Disaster Management Authority claims that it has directed the government to re-impose a nationwide Lockdown from 25th September,” is fake and has not been issued by the NDMA.

Hence, no official order for re-ordering Lockdown has been issued in the country as of now by NDMA.
