Mumbai: Now, BMC-run schools to get new uniforms soon


The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC)’s education department has decided to change the colours of the uniform in the civic-run schools.

Reports stated that shades that will suitably reflect the array of curricula currently offered by civic schools, from CBSE to Cambridge will be chosen this time.

For this, the corporation has set up a 15-member committee that includes designers, to decide on the new colours and dress code for students.

For those unversed, currently, the uniform is – dark blue pants, light blue shirt and tie for boys and blue shirt and blue pinafore or salwar-kameez for girls.

“We have changed the overall look of BMC-run schools. Now, we have started offering CBSC, ICSE, IB and Cambridge curricula along with SSC in BMC schools. We have also renovated school buildings. In the midst of all this change, we felt the need to change the uniform too. We want to introduce a uniform pattern that will be suitable for CBSC, ICSE and international-level schools,” an official was quoted as saying by FPJ.

Official stated that they are thinking of cream-coloured pants for boys and cream-coloured pinafores and salwars for girls. However, they are yet to decide on the colour of the shirts but are certain that these will be checked.
