According to the official reports, the Union Bank of India had mandated a section of its staffers compulsorily adhere to a special ‘Navratri’ dress code or be ready to cough out fines. The order was issued on October 1 by the Digitisation Department, at the Central Office in Mumbai, signed by General Manager, A. R. Raghavendra.

The report further added that A. R. Raghavendra has asked all staff and on-site vendor partners to follow a daily colour dress code for the festival – from October 7, yellow, green, grey, orange, white, red, royal blue, pink, and purple for the last day – October 15. And anyone who is not adhering to the colour code plus a daily group photo of all staffers will be fined Rs 200.

After this, there was a huge outburst in the social media and later the UBI management has reportedly yanked off the circular, it emerged late on Sunday night.

AIUBEF General Secretary Jagannath Chakraborty stated that issuing official instructions for celebrating a religious festival in office, fixing a dress code, and imposition of penalty are not routine matters and would have required permission from the top management.
