New Dress Code For Parliament Staff As New Building Opens

On September 18, the new Parliament building will hold its inaugural session. Although the special session’s program is still undetermined, it is definite that on September 19, Ganesh Chaturthi, the parliament’s business will transfer to the new edifice.
The personnel of the Parliament will wear new uniforms in addition to the renovated edifice. The National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) created the costume. According to sources familiar with the situation, the uniform change was intended to take place during the previous session of parliament but could not be done. .

Instead of the standard band gala suit worn by bureaucrats, they will don a magenta or deep pink Nehru jacket and shirt set with a lotus flower pattern. Khaki-colored pants will be visible on the workers.
The female workers, meanwhile, would continue to wear saree uniforms.

After the uniform change, the Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha marshals would don a Manipuri turban. The security guards inside the facility will don military-style camouflage outfits in place of their current safari suits.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi opened the new parliament building in May of this year. When describing the structure as a “testament of the advent of Aatmanirbhar Bharat (self-reliant India),” Prime Minister Modi continued, “Some moments in the developmental journey of a nation get immortalized, today is one such day…The realization of our resolution to create a “developed India” will take place in the new Parliament complex.

The potential needs of the future were taken into consideration while constructing the new parliament building. It can accommodate 888 Lok Sabha members and 384 Rajya Sabha members for meetings. The Lok Sabha Chamber will host a joint session of both chambers.
