A group of workers in India will be able to wear underwear to work for the first time in several years.
The Kerala State Human Rights Commission in the country recently ruled that a Hindu temple had to change its dress code to allow employees to wear underwear in the room where the temple counts donations.
The temple had adopted a strict dress code to prevent employees from stealing the donations, which totaled about $18 million last year and come in the form of cash and gold, silver, and diamond jewelry, the BBC reports.
The dress code barred male employees from wearing underwear, which apparently could have been used to smuggle the donations out of the temple.
The BBC notes that the one item that the dress code allowed staff to wear in the counting room was a sarong-like garment called "mundu." The workers were also subjected to strip searches before they left the temple, according to media reports.
The commission said the temple should adopt more high-tech antitheft measures instead of forbidding employees from wearing underwear.
