Notably, such claims would only be valid if it is shared by the government itself. For the unversed, owing to the pandemic, CBSE, ICSE, and other stated boards had canceled Class 10 and Class 12 board examinations and promoted students on the basis of internal assessment.
The Press Information Bureau launched this fact-checking arm in December 2019, to curb misinformation and fake news prevalent on the internet. It claimed that its objective was “to identify misinformation related to government’s policies and schemes that are circulating on various social media platforms”.
