A baffling new diktat has been put out by a top school in Pune. Authorities at MAEER MIT’s Vishwashanti Gurukul issued a set of new guidelines, dictating the colour of innerwear for girls.
Girls should wear white coloured or skin coloured innerwear, states a listing in the school diary of the new academic session. Further, parents complained that the school forced them to sign this decree to make sure everyone abides by the rules or else strict action will be taken.

There are protests being held in the city to show opposition to the weird diktat.
“They’re asking us to sign the diary which mentions this. Children are not even allowed to use toilet multiple times here,” parent of one of the students said. The school has also reportedly allotted slots for the students of each class to use the washroom or drink water. The parents of the students have reportedly approached the Director of Primary Education with their complaints.
Defending the diktat on the girl students’ innerwear colour, Dr. Suchitra Karad Nagare, Executive director of MIT Group of Institute, said that the intention behind the school’s directive is “very pure”. “The intention to give such specific directives in the school diary was very pure. We had some experiences in the past which made us take this decision. We didn’t have any hidden agenda,” Karad Nagare said.
