Janjgir Champa district is notorious for instances of copying, both individual and mass copying. Infamous among many incidents was that of a 12th class student topping the merit list in the year 2008. It later came to light that Porabai achieved the fete by copying. Hence the government has charged 18 persons, including principal and teachers of Porabai's school in the connection.
