Suit Ban

In Bangladesh, the government has banned male employees from wearing suits and ties during the hot summer months. Instead, they are supposed just to wear trousers and a shirt, which need not be tucked in any more. This is supposed to reduce the need for energy consuming air condition. They have also been told not to use air condition in temperatures below 24 C.

There is energy shortage in Bangladesh, so this seems to be a wise strategy. From what I have read, there are no rules about the dogs in government employment, though. I sure hope they will not shave the coats off of police dogs and the like.
