The world in the 21st century is highly connected and information and news travel faster than it has ever in Earth’s history. Devices connected to the internet feed unverified information 24*7. Unverified information more often than not turn out to be fake news and misinformation. Political parties, communities, organisations and individuals tend to use fake news for their individual aspirations and vested interests. It has become a socio-economic and political problem not just in India but across the world.
