Facing Severe Backlash, MUHS relaxes dress code for upcoming MBBS exams


Facing Severe Backlash, MUHS relaxes dress code for upcoming MBBS exams

The dress code will be put in action during the winter semester exams, starting November 27.

Nashik: Viewing the off-putting response from many of the state-based medical colleges on its recently issued dress code notice for upcoming MBBS examinations, the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS) has eased the code norms.

In its recent circular on the dress code, issued by Controller of Examinations, Dr Ajit Pathak, conditions for those MBBS students wearing religious and cultural dresses, have been loosened up.

It has been stated,

“Those Examinees, who want to wear Cultural/Traditional Dress during University Examinations, shall have to report the Examination Centre one (1) hour prior to the scheduled examination time for proper frisking without any inconvenience to the candidate while maintaining the sanctity of the examination.”

The dress code will be put in action during the winter semester exams, starting November 27.

The earlier circular, which was strictly drafted to prevent cheating during MBBS examinations at any of MUHS affiliated medical colleges, left no chance of cheating through papers and notes.

Only half-sleeve shirt/T-shirt, faint colour shirt, full pant or sari or salwar kamij were allowed to wear. No permission had been granted to wear shoes. MBBS medicos were strictly directed to wear only chappals/slippers during the examination period.

Watch, mobile/cell phone, headphone or any electronic equipment(s), rings, chain or any ornaments were not allowed along with an apron, cap, sunglass, money purse and wallet.

 “The clothes should be simple and designer-wear would be prohibited” added the notice.

Many MBBS medicos had earlier stated that the MUHS’s directive on wearing slippers or chappals instead of shoes would not have much of a bearing on them. The colleges’ authorities had also supported the dress code.

However, objections were raised to the clause that stated “The dress code is a must for all students, including those from religious minority institutions under MUHS’ jurisdiction.

Facing backlash over the said clause, MUHS has now eased the requirements for such MBBS students
