Government employees in Bareilly have been asked not to wear jeans and t-shirts at work, with hospital staff warned that their day’s salary will be cut if they do not adhere to the dress code.
“All government employees should come in formal dress only,” the order issued by district magistrate Surendra Singh said and asked heads of all departments in the district to comply with it.
No employee will come in jeans or t-shirts in office. Instead, they should wear shirts and trousers, while women employees have been asked to wear sari or salwar suit, Singh said in the order.
Following the District Magistrate’s order, the Chief Medical Officer issued another order saying, “Anyone coming to work without wearing formal dress will be marked absent and a day’s salary will be deducted.”
On Wednesday, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath had directed officials not to chew pan and tobacco products when they are in office.
He had also asked his ministerial colleagues to not use hooters and sirens on their four-wheelers, as it creates “noise pollution” and disturbs the public.
