IT dept ‘suits up’
The Income Tax department has prescribed a dress code for the employees of its Delhi office. Sources say the move was triggered by a recent incident when a young officer turned up in a pair of faded jeans for an official function. A principal commissioner who attended the event took umbrage and released an order urging employees to wear “appropriate, formal, clean, modest and decent clothes”. Those who don’t follow the code would invite corrective action, the order said.

Following the conviction of Asaram in a rape case, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is facing a challenge: there are demands that places named after the convicted godman be rechristened. State capital Bhopal has two places named after Asaram — a road crossing and a bus stand — both located in the neighbourhood of Asaram's ashram near the Raja Bhoj airport on the city outskirts. “No one is above the Constitution, the law, and public sentiments. It is a country where the name of Aurangzeb Road has also been changed. Soon, we will take appropriate action on this matter too,” Chouhan said on Wednesday.
