The Income Tax department on Wednesday announced that a dress code is being imposed upon its employees through the rollout of ‘Operation Dress Code’.
As per the official order by the Principal Chief Commissioner of the I-T department, all officers, staff members, and other officials would be required to maintain a “neat, clean and formal appearance that is appropriate for the workplace setting”.
“It is often seen that a large number of employees, especially the younger members of the department come casually dressed to the office, which is unexpected of them.
All the Officers/Official/Staff members should be attired in appropriate, formal, clean, modest and decent clothes. Casual and party attire should be strictly avoided during their appearance in office,” read the order.
The department further directed that if an employee fails to abide by the orders, he/she will be liable to a corrective action, to the extent that he/she may be sent back home to change and dress as per the instructions.
