Fake news is being released from the leaders, on which fact checks are being done from PIB from time to time. On 26 June, PIB fact-checked the wrong information given about the oil well of Oil India in Baghzan, Assam. A video circulated on social media in which it was said that oil is leaking from Bagzan oil well and that oil is flowing into nearby rivers and water sources. PIB, in its fact check, described it as completely wrong. PIB said that this is completely wrong.

On June 15, an attempt was made to spread a lie about the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), which the ICMR had to refute and even more, the news of Bhutan was exposed.
