4. False Claim About Compensation for Accidental Deaths Goes Viral
A viral WhatsApp message claimed that in case of an accidental death, the government is bound to give 10 times the compensation based on the deceased's average income of the past three years.
The compensation would come through if the deceased had filed their Income-Tax returns.
This claim has been circulating on social media since 2018.
