    Strict punishment for students, teachers against plagiarism

    NAGPUR: Since childhood we have learnt from our parents and teachers that in order to be successful in life we should be truthful in our work and never copy others, and if found guilty, we would be punished. The same rule has ever since been applied in every aspect of our life. This is what University Grants Commission UGC (Promotion of Academic Integrity and Prevention of Plagiarism in Higher Educational Institutions) Regulations 2018 indicates. According to the new regulation, students can lose their regulations and teachers can lose their jobs if found guilty of plagiarism.

    UGC has set four level of plagiarism:

    ·Level 0: Similarities upto 10% – Minor similarities, no penalty

    ·Level 1: Similarities above 10% to 40% – Such student shall be asked to submit a revised script within a stipulated time period not exceeding six months

    ·Level 2: Similarities above 40% to 60% – Such student shall be debarred from submitting a revised script for a period of one year

    ·Level 3: Similarities above 60% -Such student registration for that programme shall be cancelled

    Penalties in case of plagiarism in academic and research publications:

    -Level 0: Similarities up to 10% – Minor similarities, no penalty

    – Level 1: Similarities above 10% to 40%- Shall be asked to withdraw manuscript
