Fact Check: Will NPR documents be required to withdraw money from the bank after 1st April?

  • Share

Summary

The viral claim is false that NPR document is mandatory to withdraw money from the bank accounts from 01 April 2020. No such circular has been issued by the Reserve Bank of India.

A photo of notice is being shared widely on social media with a claim that NPR documents will be required to withdraw money from the bank after 1st April. The notice reads, "Every individual is being informed to withdraw money from all bank accounts before 31st March 2020 as NPR documents will be asked by the bank from 1 April 2020. The account of those who do not have the document will be blocked. Share this information with as many people as possible. Jai Hind"

A Facebook page name I Hate BJP shared the picture with a caption, "Important Notice: Especially for Muslims. Withdraw all your money from the bank before 1st April otherwise all your money will be sunk.

The viral claim received 123 likes and 494 shares at the time of writing this article.

Fact Check 

In the investigation, we found that the notice being shared on social media is fake. No such notice has been issued by the Reserve Bank.

We first searched the official RBI's website but did not find any circular even remotely related to the viral claim. There is no such notification or press release, in which the NPR document has been declared mandatory for bank account.

There are no news reports either to confirm that the NPR document is mandatory to withdraw money from the banks from 01 April 2020.

PIB Fact Check, a Twitter handle dedicated to countering misinformation on Govt. policies and schemes also tweeted to clarify that RBI hasn't released any such circular.

In conclusion, the viral claim is false that the NPR document is mandatory to withdraw money from the bank accounts from 01 April 2020. No such circular has been issued by the Reserve Bank of India.
