2019 has seen khadi production get doubled thanks to promotion by our Prime Minister!

And now in another move, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath, has decided to introduce uniforms made in the indigenous fabric in some Government schools.

The state’s basic education minister Anupama Jaiswal relayed the media, “In order to promote khadi and make children aware of its importance, the State Government has decided to introduce khadi school uniforms in primary schools (classes 1 to 5) in the state on a pilot project basis.”

The plans for implementing this are limited to one block each in the four districts of the state, including Bahraich, from the academic session beginning in July.

She said that the reason for using khadi is that it is a sturdy and low maintenance fabric that is ideal for the hot summers that the state faces.

“If the results are encouraging, the pilot project will be replicated across the state,” Jaiswal added.

The uniforms for boys and girls will be different with boys sporting dark brown trousers and pink shirts, while for the girls it will be dark brown skirts and pink tops. The collars will be brown for both boys and girls.
