According to a mail sent to the residents of the IIT Bombay's hostel 11, students who consume non-vegetarian are required to use separate plates to avoid any mixup of plates.

The mail, dated January 12, was sent by the mess administration after receiving complaints from the vegetarian students. 

However, the hostel administration and other officials note that the rule was in place for many years and was only reiterated owing to repeated complaints received from the vegetarian students.
