Investigation

Vishvas News first took the help of Google search to know the truth of the viral post. We wanted to know whether telcos are offering fee recharge to their consumers in the country on record vaccinations.

On searching with related keywords, we could not find any news that could confirm the veracity of the viral post.

During the search itself, we found a report published on the website of Dainik Jagran on April 22, 2021. In the news, a viral post by the Cellular Operators Association of India with free recharge for three months was said to be fake. You can read the full news of Jagran.com by clicking here.
