Mumbai/IBNS: Days after banning hijab, NG Acharya and DK Marathe College in Mumbai has barred students from wearing torn jeans, t-shirts and "revealing dresses" on the campus, media reports said.

The notice issued by the college administration has asked students to wear "formal and decent dress" on its premises.

"Students should wear formal and decent dress while on campus. They can wear half shirt or full shirt and trouser. Girls can wear and Indian and western outfit.

"Students shall not wear any dress which reveals religion or shows cultural disparity. Jeans, t-shirts, revealing dresses and jerseys are not allowed," the notice reads.

The college had previously barred students from wearing hijab, burkha, naqab, caps et al.

The previous notice dated June 27, 2024 reads, "Hijab, burka, naqab, stoles, caps and badges can be removed by going to common rooms on the ground floor and then only they can move throughout college campus."

The institution has claimed the directives passed are applicable for all students irrespective of religion and caste.

The college claims it aims to bring a uniform dress code and not against the Muslim community.
