According to the guidelines issued by School, located in Kothrud area of the city, the girls were asked to wear either white or skin colour innerwear.
The school authority had even specified the length of the skirt to be worn by the students.
Following this, parents and students of Pune’s Maeer’s MIT School on Wednesday staged a protest against the school’s diktat.
In its set of guidelines, the school has also restricted the students from using the washroom other than the specified time.
“The girls are asked to wear either white or skin colour innerwear. They have even mentioned the length of the skirt to be worn by them. They have all these things in the school diary and have asked us to sign it,” a parent told ANI.
In the meantime, Dr Suchitra Karad Nagare, Executive director of MIT Group of Institute said the intention behind taking such steps were ‘very pure’ and was not to trouble the parents and the students.
Reacting to the notification, Maharashtra Education Minister on Thursday said following the complaint from parents and students, Pune’s Deputy Director Of Education has been directed to send a committee to the school.
On the committee’s report Education department will take steps, he added.
