The magnetic and dielectric properties of InFe$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$, InFeCuO$$_{4}$$and InGaCuO$$_{4}$$ have been investigated. All these materials areisostructural with RFe$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$ (R=Y, Ho-Lu), which shows ferroelectricity due to iron-valence ordering. InFe$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$ exhibits similar properties to those of RFe$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$; the origins of the magnetic and dielectric phenomena are likely common in InFe$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$ and RFe$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$. From measurements of the other two materials, we found that both the magnetic transition temperature and the dielectric constant are decreased in the order of InFe$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$, InFeCuO$$_{4}$$ and InGaCuO$$_{4}$$. This result strongly supports the previously reported explanation based on an electron transfer between the Fe-site ions for the corresponding rare-earth systems. Therefore, we propose that the dielectric properties of the oxides isostructural with RFe$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$ are plausibly governed by electron transfer; this situation is different from that of ordinary ferroelectrics and dielectrics, in which the displacement factions and anions is important. In addition, InFeCuO$$_{4}$$ and InGaCuO$$_{4}$$ exhibit large dielectric constants (larger than about 1500). Inconsideration of this property, the possible applications of these oxides are discussed.
