UGC Proposed Penalties for Copying in Publications

Soon a research scholar could face cancellation of his or her registration if found to have plagiarised someone else's work and faculty , if found guilty of the same, could be debarred from publishing any work, denied annual increments and disqualfied from supervising any student or scholar.

As part of its effort to have zero tolerance towards plagiarism, the University Grants Commission, has drafted a new policy to curb the menace. It says authorities of higher education institution (HEI) can also take suo motu cognisance of an act of plagiarism and initiate proceedings.

As per the draft policy , three types of penalties would be imposed on those found guilty of lifting someone else's work. While in case of “Level 1and 2“ offence, the researchers would get a chance to revise their work, “Level 3“ offence, which is “60% si milarities“ would result in cancellation of the researcher's registration.
