The notice, put up on April 16, provides details about House Day, an annual event at the institute where residents are allowed to invite guests to the hostel for an hour. The event is scheduled for April 20 this year.
"Why do our administrations have this anxiety and desperate need to police what women wear? Every other day, there is some absurd diktat in one institution or another," says the Facebook post shared along with the picture of the notice.
IIT Delhi, however, says they have no intention of imposing any dress code for the event.
Meanwhile, a comment on the post says that the notice has now been revoked.
