A matrimonial website exclusively for premier colleges called “IITIIMShaadi.com” has been criticised on social media for promoting segregation and has been called classist. Now, netizens have dug up the credentials of the founder of the site and turns out, he himself didn’t go to either IIT or IIM, leaving Twitter in splits.

Taksh Gupta, the founder and CEO of IIT-IIM Shaadi, is an alumnus of SP Jain School of Global Management. He did his B.Com from SGTB Khalsa College, Gupta’s LinkedIn profile shows.

While it is not wrong to study from any college and doesn’t take away anyone’s credibility or skills, Twitter called Gupta out for his double standards.


Naturally, Ashneer Grover’s ‘doglapan’ meme came into play.


“I stalked all of their employees on Linkedin, even none of their employees are from IIT and IIM,” said the user who had originally posted the information.
