On school uniform

The minister directed that the uniform once introduced in schools should be carried on for at least three years and no change in the color and design of the dress be introduced in that period.

“The details pertaining to design, color, texture, material, etc. should be uploaded on the school website so that parents may buy a ready-made uniform or get them to tailor made as per their choice and resources,” Singla said in an official release.
