IIT Bombay: In IIT Bombay, a case of some students eating non-veg food on the vegetarian table set by the mess council has come to light, after which a fine of Rs 10,000 was imposed on one of them. Actually, it is a combined mess of Hostels 12, 13 and 14 of IIT Bombay. In this mess, 6 tables of veg food are kept by the council for the students.
