The message reads, “Government will provide FREE Smartphones to all people across the country to support learning.”

In a tweet shared on Monday, the fact-checking Twitter handle of the PIB (@PIBFactCheck) debunked the rumour and clarified that there is no such scheme by the Government of India.

“A message is circulating on social media claims that @EduMinOfIndia will provide free smartphones to everyone across the country. The message is #Fake. Government of India is not running any such scene,” it said.
