In the academic session of 2022-23, the students studying in the private schools  of Arunachal Pradesh can go to their educational institutes wearing traditional outfits every Monday.

About the decision:

The decision was taken by the state’s Private Schools and Children Welfare Association at a meeting where representatives of more than 180 schools were present.

On February 11, Vice-president of an association, Tarh Johnny while speaking to the media said that “There are more than 100 tribes and sub-tribes in Arunachal. We have decided that the students, including non-tribals, will go to school wearing their traditional dress every Monday. It will be mandatory for all students.”

Free to wear traditional dresses:

“The students will have the freedom to wear their traditional dress, irrespective of communities. If somebody is a Nyishi, s/he will wear Nyishi dress. The Galos will wear their traditional dress. Similarly, the non-tribals will have the freedom to wear their traditional dress,” Johnny explained.

He further said that the Nyishi Students Union had earlier raised this issue before the state government and a section of the parents also wanted this to be implemented.
