Department of Undergraduate Education Karnataka does not mandate uniforms in its colleges but there are certain institutes that do have dress codes.

The idea of peace meeting was inducted by Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai who instructed police, school administration and district officials to conduct peace committee meetings at district level. The meeting held in Udupi was attended by senior police and district officials, parents, political and religious leaders.

Karnataka CM said that meeting was attended by Muslim Okkoota, Social Democratic Party of India, Popular Front of India. The situation in the schools went out of hand because of a student organization Campus Front of India. Because of which they were not invited to attend the peace meeting. Last week a three judge bench at Karnataka High Court referred the case to a higher bench for discussion.

Chief Minister Bommai said, “A decision regarding the reopening of pre-university and degree colleges will be taken after assessing the situation. Trouble-makers will face legal action as schools up to Class 10 are reopening from Monday. The students must focus on the examinations scheduled in March, other things will be taken care of by investigative agencies.”
