After a woman questioned a Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) conductor in a viral video about his skull cap, the transport department declared that there is no policy governing employees’ use of religious symbols while at work. The department also made it clear that they would not pursue legal action against the passenger who requested the conductor of the BMTC take off the skull cap, according to The News Minute.

According to the report, the department set the code of conduct for bus drivers very long ago. “The transport department’s code of conduct for employees was reviewed long ago and no changes were made in recent times. However, there is no such rule which prevents employees from coming to work with religious identifiers. The rule doesn’t also advocate the practice,” a transport department public relations officer was quoted as saying.

It is also reported that the BMTC conductor, whom a woman policed, was not coming to work for a few days.
