Fact Check:

The story in question claims Indian Labour workers who worked for 30 years between 1990 and 2020 have the right to receive a benefit of 1,20,000 rupees from Ministry of Labour and Employment. The message doing rounds on Facebook and WhatsApp also accompanies a link to check the list of eligible people and withdraw the monetary benefits. No, the claims are not true – do not fall for the scam.

Can the Labour Workers Receive 120000 from Ministry of Labour & Employment?

On 12th May 2020, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a Rs 20 Lakh Crore stimulus package. The amount – 10 per cent of India’s GDP – was announced to save the lockdown-battered economy due to global pandemic, COVID-19. The package will also focus on empowering the poor, labourers and migrant workers among other priority sectors. However, there was no such announcement from India’s Ministry of Labour and Employment about benefit of 120000 rupees to migrant workers who worked for 30 years between 1990 and 2020. We did not find any such information on the department’s official website labour.gov.in.

The accompanying link is taken down, and is most certainly a fraud website. Screenshot of the landing page before it shuts suggests the fraud website is designed to harvest your personal data in the form of surveys or others. On 14th May 2020, Twitter page of Press Information Bureau (PIB) Fact Check confirmed it as fake news. Again, they mentioned Government of India did not announce any such thing. They cautioned people to be careful with such fraudulent websites.

Note, the scam messages are also doing rounds in other versions. They are targeting labour workers in other countries like UAE and South Africa. Beware of the fake claims and the scam websites. Do not fill in the forms and do not share/forward the messages to others on WhatsApp or elsewhere.

Hoax or Fact:
