Copy-pasters: Beware! New Website by AICTE to Prevent Project Report Plagiarism

In an attempt to discourage plagiarism of project reports, the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) is setting up a website on which every graduate, postgraduate and doctoral fellows in India can upload their project summaries.

This move by the AICTE has a dual purpose­- it is an effort to promote a culture of research in students and encourage originality and creativity. This website will provide free access to all students to see project reports of others, but at the same time expose students who simply copy or steal work done by others.

This might be a major step towards minimizing the rampant practice of students copying project reports from others in India.
