A YouTube video is going viral on social media these days. The video claims that the central government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is providing a cash amount of Rs 2,20,000 to all women of the country. It is also being said in the video that under the 'Pradhan Mantri Nari Shakti Yojana', money is being deposited directly into the bank accounts of women. It has been said in the video that under this scheme, loans up to Rs 25 lakh are also being given without any guarantee, interest, or security.


However, exposing the wrong information, the Press Information Bureau (PIB) has now said that the claim being made in the viral video is FAKE.
PIB also revealed that the central government is not running any scheme in the name of 'Pradhan Mantri Nari Shakti Yojana'. The Center and all its agencies have always made sure to warn people against such false claims. People need to know that only verified sources and government authorities should be the source of their information.

Claim: A YouTube said that the central government is providing all women in India with a cash amount of Rs 2,20,000 and a loan of up to Rs 25 lakh under the 'Pradhan Mantri Nari Shakti Yojana'.



Fact Check: PIB has said that this claim is fake and the central government has no scheme like 'Pradhan Mantri Nari Shakti Yojana'.
If you come across a video saying that a decent amount will be deposited in the account of a woman by the government, don't forward it to anyone. Especially, if someone asks for personal information so that you can take advantage then do not fall prey to such messages.
