A group of students, led by their leader Mansimrat Singh, Wednesday met the college principal, requesting her to withdraw the circular. However, Sharma declined to withdraw it, the students said.

As per the reports that are coming, the students might have to wear formal clothes inside the premises. Many students have raised their voices against this issue.
Many colleges have e dress code in India. There are many colleges where a proper uniform is issued to the students. When these college students pass out from the school, they feel that it’s their time to explore the wardrobe.
