This includes regular haircut, beard trimming, nail cutting, shower and use of deodorants/perfume. The letter said gatekeepers must always be in their recommended uniforms and all the support staff may also be allocated a uniform.

Explaining the dress code, the letter said all staff shall maintain formal dress code while in the institutions, premises and during official gatherings, ceremonies and meetings.

For male staff, the letter said: "Wear appropriate, simple and decent shalwar kameez preferably with a waistcoat in accordance with the weather conditions. Wear dress shirt (full sleeves preferably with tie) and trousers (dress and cotton pants only). Wearing jeans is not allowed in any case. During the summer, a half sleeves dress shirt or bush shirt can also be worn but t-shirts of all types are not allowed.

"Only formal shoes (dress shoes, loafers, moccasins and boots) must be worn and owing to longstanding hours during teaching comfortable shoes like sneakers and sandals can be worn as well. However, wearing slippers is not allowed at all,” the letter said.

It said for males, wearing shalwar kameez with waistcoat, pants and shirt with tie (preferably jacket/coat) was mandatory. For female, event-appropriate decent dress (shalwar kameez, trouser, shirt) with dupatta/shawl must be observed. "Fancy/party dresses in official gatherings/meetings are discouraged,” added the letter.
