Dear Khaled,

Though there are no restrictions on the dress code of employees in the software industry except a few companies that have a stringent dress code policy. However, certain standard rules of dress code needs to be followed like - no sandals, no t-shirts,  no  jeans, no grease-covered khakis, no clothing with slang/abusive content imprints, no filthy and cheap clothing etc. Few companies though not having a policy do observe the dress code on the above mentioned lines. Hence, casuals and decent formals are much observed as a dress code, except for the weekend days during which employees have the liberty to wear their own dress code.

Dear Khaled,

Generally speaking inplaces other than in the armed forces, the service industry  comprising of the hospitality industry, the airline companies, the railways, the health industry to name a few which have devised policies on uniform dress codes, and there are a few IT/ITES companies  which observe a dress code on any working day beginning from Monday going through till Thursday and finally on Friday they can be in casual dresses. All leading companies in India be it the home grown ones like Infosys, TCS, Satyam, HCL, IGate, etc., to name just a few and the multi-nationals like IBM,  Microsoft, Oracle to again name a few observe this practice explained just now a few lines above.
The idea again is that these companies get a lot of visitors, and may be that a good number of them will have to go over to clients for meeting so they insist that people observe a dress code.

Barring these few there are many other companies which doesn't observe a dress code at all, in fact, they have also allowed their employees the facility of flexi-timing and in a few cases employees are even allowed t work out of their homes
