NEW DELHI, INDIA:  Scholars pursuing PhD at Delhi University (DU) can now appear for their viva through Skype or other modes of video conferencing.

The DU has also made it mandatory that the thesis submitted by the PhD scholars pass a ‘plagiarism check’ and procured specialised softwares for it.

Earlier the students had to appear in person for their viva for PhD programmes. The ones who had completed their thesis and were offered any opportunities abroad, they had to travel back for the process.

Following directives from the University Grants Commission (UGC), to discourage plagiarism in PhD thesis, DU has made it mandatory that all the theses submitted will be subjected to plagiarism check using specialised softwares.

The varsity has also increased the time span for finishing PhD from four years to upto 6.5 years.
