The same news was even viral in 2019.

Fact Check:

On performing simple reverse image search of the above image, we came across a tweet of Spokesperson, Election Commission of India ,in which it is clearly specified that the above viral newspaper clip is fake.

Hence, the viral newspaper clip that Rs 350 would be deducted from the bank account, if vote is not given is fake and misleading.
