According to PIB, the government of India has clarified that there is no scheme to provide free mobile recharge worth Rs 239 for 28 days to users who click on a “blue link”. The message spreading this claim is false.
The PIB, which is responsible for sharing information on behalf of the central government, has clarified a message being circulated on WhatsApp. The message suggests that the government is offering a free 28-day mobile recharge of Rs 239 to all users who click on a “blue link”.
