The district magistrate of Bageshwar, Uttarakhand has issued orders prohibiting all employees from wearing jeans and t-shirts during office hours and meeting higher-level officials. He said that if there is a failure in adhering to the dress code, necessary action will be taken against the employee.
In a tweet, ANI reported that the DM had issued these orders after finding employees “inappropriately dressed” during office hours and meeting higher-level officials.
"It is often coming to the notice that the district-level officers and employees are always participating in meetings, wearing jeans and T-shirts in front of their higher officials, without following the dress code. Being a government employee is not graceful," said the DM.
He added that such practices tarnished the image of the office management.
The report further stated that the DM has now ordered all the employees and district-level officers to wear proper uniforms during office hours so that a professional environment is maintained in the office.
"Necessary action will be taken against those who will violate this norm," he added.
