Dear Ms. Sharma,

Here is the list with approximate price. Price is mostly depend on the number of users and number of documents check for plagiarism.

1. Turniti (https://www.turnitin. com) - Annually around Rs. 3.5 Lakhs

2. Urkund (https://www.urkund. com) - Annually around Rs. 1.5 Lakhs

3. Check for Plag (https://www.checkforplag. com) - Annually around Rs. 1.5 Lakhs

Dear Dr. Barman,

Thanks for your post.

We are thinking to get one anti plagiarism software and iThenticate Pay per Use offer being the cheapest, is being considered seriously. However, one of our Library Committee member informed that UGC is offering some plagiarism check software for free.! Is it true? I could not find it in their website.

I shall appreciate if you or any forum member can provide me detailed information about this software if available.

Dear Ray Sir, INFLIBNET previously used to provided access to the Turnitin free of cost for the universities, however, you know that in real sense nothing is free, the cost of the software used to be born by the MHRD centrally. I think in the year 2015, INFLIBNET switch over to Urkund and from that point onward they are providing access to the Urkund software free of cost to the universities.

Here are a few old discussions regarding the issues. You can always search our old forum post at:

1. Anti Plagiarism Software (iThenticate and Turnitin) to be discontinued from 31st March 2015 from INFLIBNET services. Website:

2. INFLIBNET Centre has Selected ''Urkund' Anti-Plagiarism Software. Website:

Many thanks Dr. Barman. I shall inquire from the UGC

Incidentally, I just learned that e-Shodh Sindhu is going to be wind up! Is it true?

If you have any news, please  share.

Till date, I am not aware of such news.

Dear Ms. Sharma,

Thanks for your post.

I have seen Dr. Barman's post and the details of the three prominent anti Plagiarism software.
I would like add another one called iThenticate and they have an unique provision called "PAY PER USE"  Here you can pay Rs. 17,700/- and buy rights to check 100 articles of 50 page each. If you complete the quota, you can again purchase  another set of 100 articles. I presume that for small/new institutes, it will be quite cost-effective. However, honestly speaking, I have not yet checked/used this software. So I can not confirm how good it is. It is a product of Informatics. Here is the link.

Dear Ray Sir,

URKUND is the good one and it has been recommended by INFLIBNET.
