Mumbai: From the coming academic year, students of the schools run by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will get separate sports uniforms and canvas shoes. These will be provided along with the 27 other items.

The sports uniform is likely to be in blue, green, red and yellow. The proposal to purchase about 3.25 lakh canvas shoes worth about ₹7.5 crore has been presented to the standing committee.

Incidentally, the noted shoe brand, Bata, had participated in the bidding. However, the samples were not found to be up to the mark by the BMC’s quality monitoring team.

The chairperson of the civic body’s education committee, Subhada Gudekar, who is also part of the standing committee, said, “The Bata samples were not approved. But the other supplier will provide quality shoes. The proposal could be decided soon.”

The proposal for the sports uniform is expected to be presented in some time.
