Even after facing opposition from students, Sarojini Naidu Government Girls Post Graduate College (Nutan) has started dress code compulsion on students from Monday onwards.

As it was first day, lesser number of students appeared in new uniform. By imposing order of dress code, Nutan College bade farewell to casual attire such as jeans, skirts etc from the campus. According to the new scheme, students will have to wear salwar, kurta and jacket in particular colour. However, college management has given relaxation to the students for the first week.

Earlier in month of December, when college management released circular to impose dress code, slogan were raised. Students staged protest and asked to withdraw the decision. Special final year students said they would complete the course in three months so that would not be following the uniform. Concern with the issue, college management said to give relaxation to such students.

Talking to “The Hitavada” over phone, Vandana Agnihotri principal Nutan College said, “We have introduced dress on demand of students only. It will bring uniformity among students as there are students from different society and class. Final year students would relaxation under certain condition.” She further added, there are girls from several class and standard. It is necessary to bring students under discipline by uniform. She said decision has been taken out on demand of students. According to college principal Vandana Agnihotri students will be getting relaxation for few days. From next week it will be compulsory for all (excluding final year) to appear in uniform. It may be noted that earlier in year 2010, Nutan College banned shorts and jeans for teachers.

College management said there were no difference between student and teachers as both came in similar dress. College management asked teachers to appear in saree and other traditional uniform which keep them different from students.
