State-run schools in West Bengal will be free to use their own badges along with the Biswa Bangla logo in the new set of uniforms provided to students of pre-primary to Class VIII students by the state government, chief minister Mamata Banerjee has said.

The logo which will feature on the new common uniform of all state-run schools belongs to the West Bengal government, Banerjee said.

Speaking for the first time on the issue, Banerjee said, "This (the new uniform) is not for private schools but those run by the state government. We provide the dress free of cost. The logo will prove that the uniform has been given by the state government.”

The authorities have decided that all government and government-aided schools of West Bengal will have a common uniform in blue and white colour scheme, and the dress will feature the Biswa Bangla logo of the state government. Currently, each school has its own colour-coded uniform.

“Though the Biswa Bangla logo would be there, state-run schools will be free to use their own badges,” the chief minister said at a government programme in Kolkata.

Banerjee said she had drawn the logo and given it to the state government following proper legal steps.

The uniforms in the specified colours, logo, school bags and shoes will be made by self-help groups (SHGs) under the MSME, a notice from the department said.
