Claim: Video shows Tata salt being packed in Begum Bazaar.
Fact: The incident is related to Dera Bassi (Punjab). ‘Tata Salt’ has clarified that the video pertains to a raid conducted by their team along with the Punjab Police against counterfeit salt operations in Dera Bassi. Hence the claim made in the post is MISLEADING.

The image of the same article was also posted by the ‘Tata Salt’ on its official Facebook page
To sum it up, the video is related to a raid by authorities against counterfeit salt operations in Dera Bassi (Punjab), not Begum Bazaar (Telangana).
