Fact Check: Did The Supreme Court Approve A Logo For Teachers?

A picture of apparently a logo is being circulated in WhatsApp with the claim that it is the new logo for teachers to put on their car as Doctors and Lawyers do. It is also being said that the Supreme court has approved this logo.


The logo shows two palms around a book and a pen in the centre – with the text "I want, I can, I will."




The Logical Indian received multiple requests to verify the logo.


Claim:

Supreme court has approved a new logo for teachers to put on their car.

Fact Check:

The claim is false. The Supreme Court has not approved any logo for teachers. The website of the Supreme Court has no mention of any directive being passed around it.


The logo has been going viral since the last couple of years.

The logo was originally designed by Rajesh Khanna, a principal of a government school in Ludhiana's Jagraon town, in September 2017, on the occasion of Teacher's Day.

"There has been no directive from SC of this sort, at least none that I know of. We are currently in the process of getting it approved as a trademark. However, the news of the SC approving this symbol is false," the Quint quoted Khanna as saying 2 years ago.

Below is a screenshot of his Facebook page where he states that the logo was created him:
