Wearing jeans, t-shirts or leggings would no longer be allowed at the Sarojini Naidu Government Girls Post Graduate College in Bhopal, commonly known as Nutan College, as the authorities have decided to have a dress code.
From the next month, the students will have to wear salwar, kurta and a jacket.
“We have decided to implement a dress code from the next month when a new semester would start. The girls have been making this demand for long,” said the college Principal Vandana Agnihotri. The dress code would instill discipline among the students, as in schools, she told PTI.
“Some girls from final year had come to me. They are completing their studies. Their contention was they will have to purchase a new dress only for (remaining) few months,” she said, when asked if there was any opposition to the decision. College was yet to decide whether these girls should be granted exemption, she said.
In October this year, Madhya Pradesh Higher Education Minister Jaibhan Singh Pawaiya had said the BJP government in the state intended to introduce a dress code in the colleges as it brings uniformity.
