Are you a graduate of IIT, IIM and are looking for a life partner with the same educational qualification. A new website, a miniature version of mega marriage websites can help you.

The marriage portal iitiimshaadi.com, takes the name and sells itself on the names of two of the most premier institutions -IIT and IIM.

Dr Ajay Gupta, founder of the portal, told HT: " Alumni of such  education institutes deservedly desire companionship with similar experiences and expectations. This portal has been envisaged on the tailor-made needs of this segment."

Gupta said he started the portal in April this year when he realized that highly educated people had practical difficulties in searching for a match. " The normal marriage portals like shaadi.com have millions  of profiles loaded and one really needs an advanced search for match making. An important  criteria in  match making is education . We therefore decided to have a platform where people who have educated from premier institutions in any discipline can meet their partners."

So far he said the portal had got  around 800 registrations. " After checking with the certificates, around 80 profiles have been uploaded. At present this is free of cost but after a few months we will work out a revenue generating model."

This site provides high search quality using pre-set filters, such as tolerance to late working hours, frequent relocation and even  willingness to attend office parties, he said.

The grooms have to be an alumni of Indian and International premier institutions in engineering & architecture, medicine, finance, law, MBA, master of social work, master of media Communication, fashion designing and senior government administration. The eligibility for  brides is slightly relaxed and they have to be an alumni of country -wide reputed graduation institutions. " There is a relaxation for girls as there are very few girls in IITs and IIMs."
