Fact Check: Does This Image Of Broken Ceiling Depict The Condition Of A School In Gujarat? Here’s The Truth

A picture of children sitting in a room with a damaged ceiling is being shared on social media with a claim that the picture is of a school in Gujarat.

Social media users shared the image with the caption, “Gujarat government just opened new Solar Power School…Thanks, Modiji.”

Here’s the link to the above post.


NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found the claim to be false.

A simple Reverse Image Search led us to a 2019 article by Amar Ujala where a similar picture was featured.

The article mentioned that the image is from a school in Almora, Uttarakhand.

We then ran a keyword search along with another Reverse Image Search and found the same viral image in an article by Dainik Jagran dated March 10, 2018.

The article mentioned that the image shows the condition of a Government Primary School of Khatoli village in Almora, Uttarkhand. The report also mentioned that the classroom often fills with water during the rainy season, and these conditions are affecting the education of the children in the school.

Hence, from the above information, it is clear that the image is old and is from Uttarakhand and is not related to Gujarat.
