The village panchayat issued this diktat a year ago after several incidents of elopement were reported.
Speaking to ANI, Village Sarpanch Prem Singh said since the time they have implemented this rule, the situation in the village is better.
Meanwhile, the girls of the village have termed the diktat as "bizarre".
"This is completely wrong; the problem is in the mentality of men, not in the clothes we wear. How can they judge the character of a woman from the clothes she wears?" said one of the residents. (ANI)
