Of course, at this time, they'd put their shoes/chappal back on.

Is this not followed anywhere else outside of Gujarat?

I don't remember observing this at public offices or large businesses.
Exactly,the above picture looks like from outside of some classes or institutes most probably some computer institute because thats the only place nowadays where people are expected to remove chappal

And BTW whats wrong if you ask someone to remove your footwears outside your home or work place for cleanliness of the place ?
