No doctorate for plagiarised PhD thesis: Javadekar
The Union government has decided to use the ‘Turnitin’ software to clamp down on the practice of plagiarism in PhD theses, HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said on Saturday. He also said those whose dissertations have plagiarised content would not get doctorates.

“The Central government has taken strong steps to keep a check on the practice of plagiarism in PhD research. One person’s PhD thesis has been wrongly used by others to complete their theses. As such cases are on the rise, we have decided to use software such as ‘Turnitin’ and others to keep a check on such theses,” the minister said in Shirdi, after visiting the Sai Baba temple on Saturday evening.


When asked about the permission for the Shri Sai Baba Sansthan Trust (SSST) to start a medical college, Javadekar said, “Once the proposal is received, I will speak to the Indian Medical Association and the Union health minister to get permission for the college.”

The minister said the government had started medical colleges across the country.

“The proposed medical college of the SSST will also come up with the donations received from the people’s contribution,” Javadekar said. MMB
