The quality of Indian Ph.D Theses is going down drastically in the last few years and unfortunately, it becomes a business venture. Please read an article in the Times of India. Jan. 28 in the Chennai Edition (Times City Column) with the title, "Tamilnadu's PHD Factories".
This article says if you are ready to spend Rs 300000/, you can get a degree easily without knowing or doing anything about research. In Library Science also, money plays a major role. It is evident that the quality or standard of Ph.D theses is very poor.
Many research guides or supervisor accept Ph.D. title which are worth-less, senseless and meaningless research. All such theses are stereotyped and contain trivial content marred by poor writing and worthless findings. PhD degrees are the reflection of idiotic exercises carried out by research scholars and guides.
I expect that bogus research will rule our country in the near future.
