On Monday the new circular mentioned that the "employees should wear something decent" as opposed to the earlier circular which clearly mentioned that they were not supposed to wear casuals to work like jeans t-shirt and sleeveless tops.
Post the circulation of the notice, some employees staged a protest in front of the Vidhan Soudha against the circular and the dress code.
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah spoke to reporters and said that he was not aware of the earlier circular on the dress code as he was travelling and was out of the country.
The earlier notice was initiated by some senior employees, who brought to the notice of the association that some young employees, were turning up in the work place in casual attire, which they considered inappropriate.
Some of the clothing in question were jeans, tops, designer blouses and sleeveless dresses worn by women, whereas men donning casual jeans and t shirt didn't go down well with the seniors.
