Educational Institutes In Assam Receive Government Notification To Follow A Dress Code

On Saturday, May 20, the Assam government released a notification that set a dress code for teachers in all of the state’s public schools and outlawed wearing jeans and leggings. The Assam government created this dress code for teachers, claiming that some had a “habit” of donning attire that occasionally did not seem appropriate to the general public.

Decorum For Decency

In order to preserve a respectable academic environment on campus, the Assam government has implemented a dress code for the teaching staff at all educational institutions.

For male instructors, formal shirts and trousers are acceptable, whereas saris, mekhela-chador, and salwar suits are advised for female educators. They also instructed the teaching staff to refrain from wearing casual or party attire and to dress neatly, modestly, and professionally in somber hues that don’t seem showy.
