The creation of local magnetic moments at the plane and chain Cu-sites in YBa2Cu3O7 due to incorporation of Ga3+ and Zn2+ has been studied with respect to the superconducting transition temperature and structural parameters of the compound. The result indicates that the local moments are created due to slowing down of spin and charge fluctuations in the planes and chains respectively due to doping.
