Delhi University has instructed students to wear angavastra during the convocation ceremony

Delhi University Convocation: Delhi University’s 99th convocation is going to be different as students will be seen in Indian attire wearing ‘angavastra’ instead of ‘old colonial gowns’. According to the official notification, the 99th convocation of the university will be held on February 25.

A senior university official said the university has decided to ditch the gown to adopt a dress “inspired by Indian culture”. Regarding the change in the dress code, the official told the news agency that students will be provided with ‘angavastra’ and there will be no graduation cap or gown.

For officials and guests, the attire will be of khadi silk, another way of promoting Indian tradition and culture. Delhi University Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Singh said, “The choga (robe) or gown was there for a long time. The university felt the need to change this. Students will wear angavastra and officers will wear khadi silk, it’s like going back to their roots.

While students are not required to wear Indian attire, the university is requesting to opt for traditional attire such as kurta and saree. (with language input)
