Department of Textile Technology

It has come to the notice of the Institute that one group by name Greymeter Services Pvt. Ltd. (a start-up company, ex-students of IIT Delhi) has posted some inappropriate clip in the Facebook on 26.03.2016 tiled ‘IIT Delhi to shut down Textile Technology Department’. Later on 01.04.2016 they posted apology citing the event and clip as ‘April Fool Prank’ with no intentions to hurt anyone. They felt extremely sorry for endorsing such prank and not to repeat such things in future.

This errant news and behavior of the people spreading malice about the Institute has caused embarrassment and the Department received many calls to clarify its position.

This issue of false news has been viewed very seriously. The Institute has decided to conduct an inquiry and investigation the matter through the Dean (Students Affairs). He may in consultation with Head, Textile Technology Department and Security Wing will investigate the case and for requirements if any, legal and police assistance may also be taken to probe the case in detail.
