A video of a double-decker train from Sydney with a 'Made in India' claim went viral on social media platforms Twitter and Facebook.
An archived version of the tweet can be found here.
The caption said "22 metro trains were Made operational in Sydney yesterday! A Matter of ???????? pride, all these trains were MADE IN INDIA! First time in History- Coaches Made in India being run in a foreign land! When PM Modi said New India, this is what he meant!"
The video was massively shared on Facebook as well.
According to the tweet made on 23 July, 22 metro trains were made operational in Sydney a day before.
The claim made along the video is incorrect on two fronts. Although the train is functioning in Sydney, it was not manufactured India and was not made operational on 22 July.
With a simple Google reverse image search, one can find the video on YouTube which was uploaded on 2018.
