ControversyIn 2004, when his book Freedom Is Not Free came out, Amrit Lal, a retired Indian civil servant, accused Shiv Khera of plagiarism, alleging that content from that book directly came from his own book India Enough Is Enoughwhich was published in 1995. He also found that numerous anecdotes, jokes and quotes in Shiv Khera's other books were also used without acknowledging proper sources.
Shiv Khera admitted that he took notes and inspirations from other sources and he was unable to keep track of all of them. So, he had to do an out-of-court settlement for a sum of money (25 lakh according to Shiv Khera).
