Below are the excerpts from the Indian Express’ report published here:

“Following The Indian Express report that documents showed Pondicherry University Vice-Chancellor Chandra Krishnamurthy has plagiarised most of the book she mentioned in her CV, the Pondicherry University Teachers’ Association (PUTA) has sent a letter to Union Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani seeking her immediate removal and a probe into her academic credentials.

The Indian Express had reported on Saturday that Krishnamurthy appeared to have plagiarised most parts in one book by her, Legal Education in India (2009 and 2011), mentioned in her CV. Five out of eight chapters and the preface appear to be verbatim copies of papers published by eminent legal scholars. Two other books mentioned in her CV may have never been published at all.”
