Fact check ::: PM Dhan Lakshmi Yojana's claim of giving loan up to Rs 5 lakh on fact check /
social media is false, the government itself said that there is no such scheme
Click on this link to apply online as written in the viral message. Clicking on the link opens the https://govt-yojana.com website. On the right side of the website it is clearly written that it is not an official website. That in itself is a hoax. First it was said, apply online by clicking on the link, then it is written inside, it is not a government website.
Several claims related to PM Dhan Lakshmi Yojana have been made on the website. In addition, it says, you have to go to the nearest district level community center to apply. This is another fraud. As it was written in the viral message that online application can be done from the link.
It has become clear that the URL that is going viral is neither a government website nor an online application for a scheme. Now we started the investigation to find out the fact of the scheme of this name.
However, the claim is being made about schemes involving women and also includes the term PM. That's why we started exploring information related to the central government's schemes for women. The website of the Union Ministry of Women and Child Development has three lists of schemes of the Central Government relating to women. We are not aware of any scheme here called PM Dhan Lakshmi.
Conclusion: A loan of up to Rs 5 lakh is being claimed in the name of PM Dhan Lakshmi Yojana. The central government has no plans in that name.
