Many users shared the below screenshot with different captions of Pradhan Mantri Yojana Loan.

We initiate by clicking on the link and found no such application on the play store.
After this we reverse searched the image using the keyframes and found nothing related to this scheme on the internet. Also, there is no such media report on this scheme.
The website provided on the ‘प्रधानमंत्री लोन योजना INDIA’ Facebook page is also not working. also, ‘Pradhan’ is spelled wrong as “prdhan” in the website address.
