Tata ...Salt ...Factory.....Or
Baba Ramdev salt..
Take salt ..With pinch ..!!
Facts Check: False
News Verification: The video shared on social media looks like more of a fake product packaging; it is not like original tata salt packaging. It is more of Tata salt packet, but is counterfeit products of the Tata brand.
Searching for more information we found a news on hindustantimes, published on Oct 11, 2019, titled, “Factory packing, selling counterfeit products of top brands busted in Mohali”
