A post is being shared online listing the ‘takeaways of a webinar by IMF’ which was chaired by former RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan.
The viral message lists out various takeaways from the webinar on the Coronavirus scenario, supposedly chaired by former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan.
NewsMobile fact-checked this claim and found it to be false.
The Former RBI Governor, in a LinkedIn post, clarified that the viral message is FAKE.
“A webinar, purportedly from an IMF session that I am supposed to have chaired, is circulating among Indian WhatsApp groups. I have not participated in any such webinar. I am afraid in this age of fake news it is hard to respond to every such occurrence. I can only say that I post all my relevant public statements on this site only,” Rajan wrote.
Moreover, we did not find any mention of such a webinar on the website of the International Monetary Fund.
This clarifies beyond doubt that this post is fake.
