Thiruvananthapuram: The Higher Education Department has come forth with clarification over the circular relating to the dress code of teachers. The circular makes it clear that the teachers can wear any kind of dress that are decent and comfortable while working.

The circular also reveals that it had come to the notice of the government that dress code related restrictions were being imposed on teachers in certain schools in the state. The department has received many such complaints.

At present, there is no rule that states that teachers must wear only sari while working at the school. Although these points were brought to light before and were much discussed, certain managements and school owners are imposing many constraints on the teachers' dress code.

In the order released by Joint Secretary Saju Kumar, it is stated that the teachers can wear any attire that are comfortable and decent while they are on duty.
