In the wake of rise in coronavirus cases in Mumbai, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and Mumbai Police have started penalising people for flouting COVID-19 norms.

And, it’s not just the virus that the authorities are striving to control, there’s an increase in rumours and fake news regarding COVID-19 that is making matter worse. One such fake news doing the rounds on social media claims ‘no mask can cost you a fine of 1000 rupees’.

However, Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh on Tuesday clarified that the fine for not wearing a mask is only Rs 200 and not more.

Taking to Twitter, Singh wrote: “Dear Mumbaikars! #FakeNews mongers are back again! This time claiming that No Mask can cost you a fine 1000 rupees. While no money can compensate for safety being compromised, you can only be charged Rupees 200 for not wearing a mask. #MaskIsMust #FakeNewsAlert.”
