- reported, the women employees of the CBI have been asked to wear only sarees, suits, formal shirts, and trousers. “No jeans, T-shirts, sports shoes, chappals, and casual attire is allowed in the office,” said the order.
The rules will be applied to CBI offices across the country and the heads of branches have been asked to ensure that guidelines are strictly followed.
CBI officers, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told HT that it is a balanced order and said every officer, staffer always needed to wear formals. “However, over the years, people started wearing casuals… like jeans and T-shirts and nobody stopped it. CBI officers need to at least wear a formal collared shirt, trousers, and shoes,” said an officer.
Jaiswal took over as the agency’s 33rd director last week, and is likely to make some important administrative changes to improve the CBI’s efficiency.
