A local government college in Bhopal has banned jeans for lady teachers instructing them to wear saris while in the campus. A spokesperson for the management of Sarojini Naidu (Nutan) College told PTI that the decision was taken to instill Indian
culture in the college.

He said that till now, teachers were wearing salwar suits, kurtas and jeans due to which it was sometimes difficult to distinguish between them and students. The spokesman said that a similar decision on enforcing a dress code for students would also be enforced from the next session. "A dress code for students cannot be enforced during the middle of an academic session," he said.
