One thing is for sure, if you are spreading false rumors through social media, the government can take action against you. Friends, we should not spread any information on social media without knowing it. If a rumor is spread falsely, the government can take action against it.
Do not fall for such #Whatsapp messages being circulated.
No such thing is being done by the Government.
However, everyone is advised to not share any false news/misinformation concerning #CoronavirusInIndia

There is a lot of talk about fake information. Guys we need to be careful about all this information. Not all such false rumors go viral on social media. And if you do, action will be taken against you. Friends, by spreading such false news in the current Corona epidemic, people may get worried.
एक वायरल मैसेज में दावा किया जा रहा है कि भारत सरकार द्वारा अब ‘नए संचार नियम’ के तहत सोशल मीडिया और फोन कॉल की निगरानी रखी जाएगी।#PIBFactCheck: यह दावा फ़र्ज़ी है।
भारत सरकार द्वारा ऐसा कोई नियम लागू नहीं किया गया है।
ऐसे किसी भी फ़र्ज़ी/अस्पष्ट सूचना को फॉरवर्ड ना करें। pic.twitter.com/mW9LT2W1k4

At present, “there is a possibility that the government will add its own tick by making special changes in the message that causes light and dark ticks. These single and double ticks are now likely to occur in triple ticks. It could also be that the government keeps an eye on your messaging. If the third tick in your message is ticked, it means that the government has read your message.” This is fake news. Action will also be taken against the spread of such fake news.
