    The answer seems wrong but it is correct. The option says : National Institute of Fashion Technology , established in 1986 is an statutory body

    The clause"established in 1986 is an statutory body " is incorrect. It was set up as a institue of Ministry of textiles without any statutory status in 1986. The Institute got its statutory status in 2006 via NIFT act 2006. :)
