    Rajeís desperate gambit: Imposing a dress code in college


    0 Not allowed!
    If the Vasundhara Raje government has its way, students in Rajasthanís State-run colleges will follow a strict dress code prescribed by the Commissionerate of College Education. In the next academic session, boys will have to stick to a shirt, pant, jersey (in winters), shoes, socks and belt. Girl students will be barred from wearing shirts and trousers and can only wear the government-mandated salwar-suit, chunni, sweater or cardigan, saree, shoes/sandals and socks to college.

    Cornered politically, incumbent governments have been known to resort to frantic measures. Higher education minister Kiran Maheshwari says the uniform will help the government identify outsiders on campus. But prescribing uniforms for university students on a day Rajasthan Womenís Commission chairperson Suman Sharma lamented the lack of broad-chested men who could protect their sisters is a desperate attempt to win back the sympathies of Rajasthanís conservative voters. Still, as chief minister Vasundhara Raje realised after a U-turn on a Bill gagging the media from reporting on public servants, mind control and regulation might not always help you bounce back from peopleís anger over governance issues.

    I know people on this site "celebrate" women's day but at the same time impose sanctions on the basic human right of the same group.

    Very good move by Rajasthan Government. In Bangalore almost all the educational institutions have their prescribed uniforms for students and some school for teaching staff as well. In olden days Government staff and Bank staff had their prescribed dress code.
    First and foremost uniforms maintain equality, "Students wearing clothing in school colours with the school mascot creates a unified community, reduces competition among students, and improves school spirit".
    We can see the orderliness and beauty in uniforms in defence forces.
    Educational institutions are not the place to parade ones status or celebrate fashion. We should not forget that we have to accept and obey certain obligations prescribed by society and Government.

    Universities are not elementary schools. The kids in Universities are adults, and they should be treated as such. Then again why only women's dress is regulated?


    If dress code brings discipline, has the uniform in the jails brought any discipline to criminals when they get out?

    Has the dress code of North Korea brought ant happiness to their citizens?


    It is a very similar conclusion as Guns in good people hand will reduce gun violence. being preached by the Gun lobby in the USA.

    Boys can wear what they always have been wearing, and Girls have to be limited!!!!!!!!!

    In the next academic session, boys will have to stick to a shirt, pant, jersey (in winters), shoes, socks and belt. Girl students will be barred from wearing shirts and trousers and can only wear the government-mandated salwar-suit, chunni, sweater or cardigan, saree, shoes/sandals and socks to college.


    Do you call that similar?


    Now I am only kidding................
    They could have said boys should wear clothes and Girls should wear a straightjacket.

    This is what Hampton University at U.S.A. practices about Uniform....

    It is nice to see some of the Indian States are trying to follow USA in few areas.....
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hampton University

    The Dress Code is based on the theory that learning to use socially acceptable manners and selecting attire appropriate to specific occasions and activities are critical factors in the total educational process. Understanding and employing these behaviors not only improves the quality of one's life, but also contributes to optimum morale, as well as embellishes the overall campus image. They also play a major role in instilling a sense of integrity and an appreciation for values and ethics.

    The continuous demonstration of appropriate manners and dress insures that Hampton University students meet the very minimum standards of quality achievement in the social, physical, moral and educational aspects of their lives - essential areas of development necessary for propelling students toward successful careers.
    Students will be denied admission to various functions if their manner of dress is inappropriate.

    Taliban enforces dress codes, should it be applauded? Some may do it.
    Is that what we want for our children, and more importantly is it what they want for themselves.

    Dress Code in Saudi Arabia for Women


    Saudi women enjoy fashionable clothing and take great pride in their appearance; however in public the law of the land states that they should cover their everyday wear with a thick, opaque and loose fitting cloak that does not show off her body.
    The strictness of the dress code in Saudi varies by region. Jeddah is seen as less conservative than Riyadh and there are different types of coverage depending on the implemented Purdah of that particular region.

    In fact it is growing in developed countries…

    Dress Codes Growing in Style at U.S. Schools

    School dress code violations have become a frequent viral occurrence in the news, and they could become more commonplace, with more and more schools employing the use of clothing restrictions. A survey from Lands’ End found that the number of public schools with a dress code increased by 21 percent from 2000 to 2013.

    Niche has also noticed this trend. According to more than 135,000 Niche users, only 2 percent reported having no school dress codes at all.
