"Copying is Slavery. The letter must never be followed, only the spirit is to be grasped. Higher affirmation lives in the spirit." - D.T. Suzuki

About Urkund

URKUND is a digitalized, fully-automated system for detecting plagiarism. Plagiarism detection plays a significant part in providing quality education. Urkund provides a personalized, accurate and confidential way to increase the productivity in every institute. It is a preventive measure to stop plagiarism and copying at the very root, and to safeguard originality and transparency.

Plagiarism is nothing but when students copy material available from other sources and pass it as their own, without citing a quotation or source. In the absence of a digital platform, it is nearly impossible for an educator to check the authenticity of such material. This can be detrimental for the institutes as the teachers are unable to evaluate students based on merit. Just as well, for the students, it beats the entire purpose of training them.


URKUND is trusted the world over and some of the best universities across the world. Invented in Sweden, it was ranked as one of the best Plagiarism software in Europe, and now has spread across the globe in USA, Middle Eastern and Asia-Pacific regions.
