New Delhi: The newly appointed the Central Bureau of Investigation director Subodh Kumar Jaiswal is reported to have dictated that casual wears, including jeans, t-shirts and sports shoes will not be allowed inside the office for officers and other staffs on duty.
In a new order, Jaiswal has made shirts, formal trousers, and formal shoes mandatory for men while women should wear sarees, suits, formal shirts, and trousers, a report published in The Hindustan Times said. Apart from setting a dress code, all men are asked to be on the duty properly shaved.
The CBI officers and staffs in offices across the country are required to follow the new order and the same guidelines should be ensured as strictly followed by the heads of respective branches.
The report further said quoting sources from the CBI that the order seemed to be a balanced one as they feel it is important to bring a discipline in the dressing code that was lost over time.
Jaiswal, who has been appointed as the 33rd director of the CBI, is expected to bring major administrative changes to improve the agency's efficiency and its image.
