There is a matrimonial website exclusively for alumni of major institutions in India – IIT and IIM. The portal and its founder are being brutally hunted down online. Here is the reason.

Netizens are upset that the founder of the website is not an IIT or IIM alumnus. Memes and jokes started circulating on social media.

The iitiimshaadi.com portal caught the eye after filmmaker Karan Johar became its brand ambassador and shared a video post on his Instagram account.

“A marriage platform like no other – IITIIMShaadi.com! And I’m super excited to see “real” love come to life, not just a reel! If you are looking for your life partner, https://www.iitiimshaadi.com/ should be your go-to site. They invite alumni of top 10-15 colleges from all fields to apply and match with each other! @iitiimshaadi__ says it well – Alma Mater Matters #iitiimshaadi #ad,” Johar wrote with a video.


According to the website, its founder, Tarak Gupta graduated in management from the SP Jain School of Global Management.

“Our founder believes that alumni of top-tier educational institutions rightly want the company of ‘matching intellect’, with similar experiences and expectations. This portal caters to the bespoke needs of this segment,” did he declare.

“We invite alumni to enroll in top Indian and global institutions (Management, Engineering, Architecture, Medicine, Mass Communication, CA/CS/ICWA/CFA, Fashion Design and many more).

“Alma Mater Matters Pvt Ltd (IITIIMShaadi) – Exclusive lounge to explore marriage alliance among alumni of leading educational institutions. Website was launched in April 2014. We now have members in India and 50 other countries One of the biggest differentiators of our website, other than its niche segment, is that we authenticate each profile on the basis of education by reviewing their institution’s degree, ID/Card Sheet. notes, etc,” he said.

Delivery startup Dunzo joined in the tweet: “We deliver for your Shaadi even if you are not from IIT IIM. I’m just saying.
