Punjab government on 28 February 2016 imposed a ban on the sale of army uniforms across the state.

Any person who wants to buy the uniform would have to submit a self-attested copy of his identity card and phone number with the shopkeeper. This record would be duly maintained along with date of sale in the record register of the shopkeeper.

These orders would remain in force till 21 April 2016 and next course of action will be decided afterwards.


Besides, the state also banned use of red and blue coloured stickers used by police on vehicles. The government has also prohibited the use of plates of political parties on vehicles with immediate effect.

The decision was taken in backdrop of terror attacks in Pathankot and Gurdaspur in the recent past. During the attacks, the militants had disguised themselves in the army fatigues.
