The Chhattisgarh government has issued a written “warning” to Bastar Collector Amit Katariya after he failed to wear “rasmi poshak (customary uniform)” when he received Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his recent visit to the region. The “confidential” letter dated May 13 says that “it has come to the notice of the administration that you did not wear appropriate customary uniform, instead had sunglasses on when you received the PM.”

“Your act violates Rule 3 (1) of All India Service Rules “Every member shall at all times maintain absolute integrity and…shall do nothing which is unbecoming of a member of the service.”
