Dress code for Karnataka employees

Update : Five days after it issued a circular laying out a dress code for its employees, the Karnataka government on Monday withdrew the September 12 notice and issued a revised one that did not specify what they should wear.

he earlier order had prescribed sari or salwar-kameez for women and shirt-trousers or kurta-pyjama for men. T-shirts, jeans and designer blouses had been banned.
Within a few hours of chief minister Siddaramaiah saying he hadn't seen the circular since he was in China and promising to look into it, the department of personnel and administrative reforms (administrative reforms) issued the fresh circular. "Employees should wear a dress which is decent," was all it said.
On Monday afternoon Siddaramaiah said: "This (dress code) was never the government's initiative. The state government secretariat employees' association gave a memorandum to impose a dress code among the employees. I'll take a look at it."
By evening, the circular was revised.
Earlier News :
Taking note of some of its staffers wearing clothes "that did not bring any repute", the Karnataka Government has prescribed a "decent" dress code for them -- pant and shirt or 'pyjama/kurta' for men and saree or 'churidar' for women.

The state government has announced enforcement of the dress code for its officials and staff after some were found to wear clothes "that did not bring any repute" to the offices.

A September 12 Government circular asked men staff to wear "decent" clothes like pant and shirt/pyjama/kurta and women staff saree or "churidar."

It has been noticed that staff of the state secretariat, particularly the newly-joined ones, come to offices wearing dress which does not bring repute to the Secretariat.

The secretariat employees union general secretary had requested the government to implement a dress code so that the staff come to offices with "respectful clothes", the circular said.

Government drivers and "D" group staff already have uniforms and they have been asked wear them without fail while coming to office.

It is the government's desire that other officials and staff on government service in the state don't wear clothes that bring it disrepute and put on only "decent" dress while coming to office, the circular issued by the Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms said.
