New circular on public servants’ dress code


A new circular will be issued on the dress code of public servants and instructions have already been given in this regard, said Secretary to the Ministry of Public Administration, Home Affairs, Provincial Councils and Local Governments Priyantha Mayadunne.

A circular previously issued had instructed that women are allowed to wear a Saree, a traditional Sri Lankan women’s silhouette (Osariya), or other suitable officewear, but the instructions have wrongly been understood by some public servants, where they tend to avoid the part ‘suitable officewear’ and comply with the first part of the clause only, Mr. Mayadunne pointed out.

In the backdrop, a new circular will be issued allowing women to wear a suitable officewear, he added.
