Plagiarism in India

Today, I was shocked by the degree of duplicating material, being published in engineering journals. My Dad has been working on his PhD. He had worked tirelessly towards his PhD. The study required, tremendous amount of effort. Briefly his work was on “treatment of leachate by recirculating through various materials”. Nearly, 250 days of influent and effluent treatment work was done. Sampling and determination of parameters was a time consuming activity. Moreover, it also requires costly equipments like Spectrophotometer, Atomic absorption spectrometer etc. In order, to expedite the process of analysis, digital equipments which are much more costly are required. The work that he, had published in one of the conferences, is being replicated deliberately. Unfortunately, he had shared the data with one of his Masters students.
He had asked me to search on Literature review. I was glad to help in that matter. Doing a search for keywords in the study, I was literally shocked from what came up on google. I came across two papers:
These two papers were based entirely on the same idea that was proposed in the paper by R.R. Gawalpanchi & Dr. V.A Mhaisalkar at Chennai. Within one year these papers were published. What I mean to say, is that, at one end it takes more than 250 days to generate the data on the other hand it takes few months to generate and publish the paper itself. On the other hand, the institutions where these people work, have the minimal laboratory facilities. It is highly unlikely that the other facilities within Nagpur which are highly inundated with testing would fit these guys in.
I was also wondering, why the Journals fail to evaluate, the references mentioned. I reported the matter to Senior Professors and did not get a satisfactory answer. If it was in the US, anyone can imagine what the consequences would be. Particularly, I want to point out to the persons responsible for upholding the quality of education in India. If such practices continue, there, it is reflecting on India’s education quality. The institutions, which replicated the data are equally responsible in my view for provoking plagiarism in India.
