At least two top professors of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIMA) had offered to step down from key administrative positions until investigations into allegations of plagiarism against them were completed. IIM-A director Samir Barua, however, asked them to continue. A person, who identified himself as Anil Sharma and claimed to be an employee of a multinational company, recently sent a mail to IIM-A faculty members and officials, accusing five senior IIM-A professors of plagiarism.

Following the allegation, Pandey chose to resign as dean of faculty. I would like to resign in my role as dean (faculty) pending the investigations. This is to prevent the possibility that such allegations may seriously result in erosion of moral authority while performing the role, he wrote in a mail to the director.In a similar mail, professor Morris also offered to step down from administrative responsibilities and wrote, We would also like to also disengage ourselves from activities where the implicit trust of stakeholders is involved pending the findings of the committee and further decisions that the institute may like to take. Barua, however, wrote a mail to all faculty members of the institute, that a committee had been set up to look into the matter and insisted the professors continue with their current roles till alternate arrangements are dictated by the course of the investigation by the committee. Barua wrote, this committee will complete its task, without fear or favour, and as early as possible, to uphold the standards of academic excellence and academic propriety that this Institute has always cherished and demanded. Earlier this month, IIM-A professor Rajanish Dass, was held guilty of plagiarism in a preliminary inquiry institute to come up with a fresh inquiry report conducted by the institute. The Gujarat high court, however, after hearing a plea by Dass, directed the.
