The College Management believes, such attires distract students' attention and is harmful for their academic pursuit.
The dictate is not limited to the notice board but the students allege that the college management is very strict in imposing the dress code.
"Students are denied admission if they do not adhere to the dress code. There is a male peon to keep an eye on what the girls are wearing", said Tanuja, one of the students of the college.
Speaking to the parents reveal that they have mixed opinions on the forceful imposition of the dress code in the college, some are shocked, while some are welcoming the decision.

"We have not stopped the students from wearing jeans. We only say that they should not wear tight jeans", SV Fadnis - Principal of the college said while speaking to the CNN-IBN7.
