    The guidelines issued by Maeer's MIT School left the parents of the students fuming. Among other things, the guidelines have asked girl pupils to wear either white or skin colour innerwear. The school has also restricted students from using the washroom other than the specified time.

    "On complaint from parents and students, Pune's Deputy Director of Education has been directed to send a committee to the school. Based on the committee's report, the education department will take steps," Maharashtra's Education Minister Vinod Tawde said.

    Suchitra Karad Nagare, executive director of MIT Group of Institute, reportedly said the intention behind taking such steps were "very pure".

    "All these rules are meant for the security of the students. There is no any other intention. If parents have any objection, they have to approach us. We will definitely find a solution," Nagare said.

    Parents and students staged a protest on Wednesday against the school's diktats and also met the director of primary education at the school to complain about the matter, said an HT report.
