"A change in uniform is very much on the agenda of Akhil Bhartiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS), the highest decision-making body of RSS, which is meeting in Nagaur from March 11," Manmohan Vaidya, All India Prachar Pramukh of the RSS, told PTI on Thursday.

The issue of change in uniform, which was taken up in a meeting of ABPS in 2010, was deferred till 2015 due to a lack of consensus, he said, adding "the apex body may take a decision on the same in the upcoming meeting."

RSS members currently sport khaki shorts and white full- sleeve shirts folded up to the elbow, besides black caps, as part of their 'ganvesh'.
