In a circular issued on Thursday by the vice-principal of the Thiruvananthapuram Government Medical College -Dr Girijakumari- a proper dress code that had to followed by the students on campus was appended along with other routine instructions.
Jeans and leggings will henceforth be a strict no-no for both sexes. T-shirts, casuals, chappals and short tops also figure on the list of dresses that cannot be worn on the campus.
The circular which was addressed to all the heads of the departments and the unit chiefs was also ordered to be put up on the notice boards of the College, Common Room, and that of the Menâ€™s and Ladiesâ€™ hostels too.
They were asked to ensure that â€˜necessary steps are taken to make the students follow the proper dress code'.
This involves both boys and girls to look â€˜neat and cleanâ€™ in their dress and appearance, which reportedly can be achieved only by wearing formals.
Male students have to wear these combined with shoes, while formals translate to churidars and sarees for the ladies. That the white overcoats along with identity cards are mandatory, goes without saying. The female students must also have their tresses put up, when on campus.
Noisy ornaments too are banned for the ladies.
