The accusation ("Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan: The teacher who plagiarized his student's thesis") by Utpal Aich (in Sept. 2016, as  part of Round Table India ... Ambedkar Age discussion group) against S. Radhakrishnan were that he had used others' (specifically Jadunath Sinha's) material 'Vedanta according to Samkara and Ramanuja' in  philosophy books written during 1920s.

However, the charges against S. Radhakrishnan seem unfounded.

Radhakrishnan's chapters on Vedanta in his books not only included information related to Samkara and Ramanuja (whatever the sources of that information), but Radhakrishnan's books also had extensive information and discussions related to the Vedanta (as Vaisnava philosophies) according to Madhva, Nimbarka, Vallabha, Caitanya, Bhaskara and Yadavaprakasa, which Radhakrishnan wouldn't have been able to compile and write if he just went on lifting and plagiarizing others' materials.

Here is one small example (compiled from Radhakrishnan's books) indicating his genuinely exhaustive effort and work in writing the books on philosophy, as "Vaisnava philosophies of Ramanuja, Madhva, Nimbarka, Vallabha, Caitanya, Bhaskara and Yadavaprakasa" : http://web.archive.org/web/20090809230814/http://geocities.com/lamberdar/vaisnava-philosophies.html
