TRUE OR FALSE

However, the words have been falsely attributed to Ratan Tata.

In a series of posts on Twitter and Instagram accounts on Saturday, 11 April, Tata confirmed that he has “never said, nor written this.”

He added that it was important to always verify news circulated on WhatsApp and other social media platforms.

“Fake news is harmful to us and we must always verify it,” Tata said.
