T-Shirts Not 'Dignified' For Government Employees: Madhya Pradesh Order

Several states during the past have issued similar orders, scoffing at jeans and t-shirts.


Wearing t-shirts to work isn’t dignified enough for government employees, the Madhya Pradesh government has decreed. Government officials and employees in the state’s Gwalior division have already been banned from wearing “faded jeans” and ‘t-shirts’ in office.

A circular issued by divisional commissioner MB Ojha asked all officials and employees to wear “dignified, decent and formal attire” while discharging their responsibilities at work.

The circular also said that on July 20, when Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan chaired a gathering, an officer in Mandsaur district attended the meet wearing “informal and graceless” attire a.k.a. t-shirt.

Strongly objecting to the incident, the state’s chief secretary has directed officials in every districts to make sure that all officers and employees arrived at work dressed up in formal, graceful and decent clothes.

The circular also said that strict disciplinary action will be taken against government servants who violate the order.

Several states previously have issued similar orders, scoffing at t-shirts and jeans.

This past year, the Bihar government too had issued an identical order for employees in hawaii secretariat, asking then to wear “simple, sober, comfortable and light-colored attire” and banned jeans and t-shirts.

Tamil Nadu also had introduced exactly the same order this past year for employees employed in hawaii secretariat.

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, however, had scrapped an identical order issued by way of a District Commissioner saying it had been not feasible.
