The importance of information in the modern era is indisputable. We are today in Information age facing information explosion. The information is divided into various groups according to its type quantity, quality, truth, value, authenticity etc. There are positive as well as negative types of information. Negative types include those which pass false, incorrect, inaccurate, biased, or fake information. The three main types are Misinformation, Disinformation and Propaganda (MDP). Truth in any information is most important factor but in reality it is never constant, the information which is true today may get contradicted and proved false. But to solve this problem the truth of that moment is considered true for passing information.
