The authorities have constituted a committee to formulate research guidelines. Also, the institute will be acquiring anti-plagiarism software to overcome basic issues such as giving attributions and also references.

Confirming the development, PEC director Manoj Datta said, “A committee has been formed to chalk out guidelines for conducting research. Once the report is submitted, we shall then go in for anti-plagiarism software. The committee will be recommending how many licences per year we need for the software.”

HT had recently highlighted the issue where research work of two faculty members, Dr Sanjeev Sofat and Divya Bansal, had been rejected by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

The society has also banned both Sofat and Bansal from approaching the institute for getting their works published for a period of three years - from January 10, 2011 to January 10, 2014 - for plagiarism.

While Sofat is the dean academics and also head of the department of computer science and engineering, Bansal is also from the same department.
