The aim of this paper is to study the concept of Intuitionistic L-fuzzy subrings and Intuitionistic L-fuzzy ideals of a ring R. In this direction definitions and properties relating to Intuitionistic L-fuzzy subrings of R and Intuitionistic L-fuzzy ideals of R are introduced and discussed. We introduce a special type of Quotient ring.
