The Ministry of Public Administration has made it compulsory for all female employees who work in government institutions, to wear a sari or an osari.  Male employees should wear a shirt and trousers, or national dress.

It said in its circular to ministry secretaries, provincial chief secretaries and department heads, to make sure that the provisions of circular 2121/1 issued on April 29, 2019 and 2123/4 issued on May 13, 2019 should be strictly adhered to.

The circular has also given guidelines for the dress code for officials and clients - adding that the clients who enter government offices for services should wear a dress which allows for clear recognition.

It said the employees who were provided with uniforms should wear the uniforms provided to them while on duty.  (Hiran Priyankara Jayasinghe)

    why are women required to adhere to the traditional dress while men have a choice between the western and traditional?

    Idiocy of the state sector at work. How can a lady attend to field work dressed in a long flowing garment? Isn't there anything productive that these idiots can do other than worrying about the dress?

    English Interpretation of the article is incorrect.pls read point iv says you can wear religious clothing as long as your identity is not covered. Pls correct the English and follow proper interpretation.

    Good . Men have the option of western and so called national dress. Women have the option of Indian and somewhat national (osari is not fully ours) dress. So females are barred from wearing western dress like men.
