Tiruvannamalai Collector  offers advice on school uniforms

Tiruvannamalai Collector offers advice on school uniforms

A consultation meeting led by District Collector D Bhaskara Pandian was held on June 7 at Sri Narayana Wedding Hall in Gandhi Nagar, Tiruvannamalai, to discuss the free sewing of school uniforms for the academic year 2024-2025. The initiative is being carried out by members of the Women's Tailoring Industry Cooperative Society under the Department of Social Welfare and Women's Rights.
The meeting addressed the efforts of 1215 members from Women's Tailoring Co-operative Societies in Tiruvannamalai and Vandavasi. These societies are responsible for sewing 4 sets of uniforms for 1,47,413 students (73,514 boys and 73,899 girls) in 2174 schools, covering grades 1 to 8. Girls up to grade 5 receive shirts and skirts, while those above grade 6 receive chudidhars and upper coats. Boys receive full-length shirts (pants).
Collector Pandian emphasised the importance of adhering to Tamil Nadu Government norms for uniform stitching, including double stitching where required, canvas collars, and nylon buttons. 
He stressed that uniforms should be well-fitted, aesthetically pleasing, and of high quality. 
Any defects in the uniforms must be reported and corrected, with actions taken against non-compliant members.
The project aims to benefit students while providing employment and income for women’s sewing cooperative societies. An awareness exhibition on Social Welfare Women and Law for Women was also held during the event. Attendees included District Revenue Officer Dr. M Priyadarshini, District Principal Education Officer D Ganesh Murthy, and other government officials.
