Types Of Holidays In India

  • National Holidays: As per the Public Holidays 2023, Republic Day, Independence Day, and Mahatma Gandhi's birthday are three secular "National Holidays". These are observed throughout India, and all government and commercial offices are closed during these.
  • All-India Public Holidays: There are 14 "public holidays" that are observed throughout all of India in addition to the three "national holidays," during which all banks and offices of the central government are closed. Among these, 3 are regulated state-by-state, and the remaining 11 are mandated nationally, reveals the Public Holidays 2023. These holidays include the festivals of the country's major religions in keeping with its religious diversity (Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Sikhism, Jainism and Buddhism). Since the majority are on a lunar calendar, they come on different dates every year.
  • State Public Holidays: Public Holidays 2023 states that there are other secular and religious festivals observed in each of India's 28 states. India has such a diverse regional culture that no two states celebrate the same combination of holidays and festivals. Hindu festivals vary from state to state and are based on geography. Labor Day is observed on May 1 in a few states. The Parsi New Year is one of the holidays in Maharashtra. There are a few extra Sikhism-related holidays in Punjab. There are 24 public holidays in the entire state of Tamilnadu. Every year, a list of public holidays for the following year is released by each state.
  • Ad-Hoc Holidays: Holidays may also be announced on the spur of the moment for events like the passing of a well-respected national figure or election days. De facto work holidays may also emerge from industrial strikes, particularly from "Bandh" or widespread strikes. Last but not least, there are the unofficial "cricket vacations" around big test matches in cricket-crazy India, when workers are still at work but very distracted or even call in sick!
  • Restricted Holidays: The so-called "limited holidays" fall under another category of holidays. There is a limited number of these holidays that people can choose from, but neither government nor commercial establishments are closed on these days. This method offers much more flexibility to accommodate India's diversity of religions and cultures.
  • Gazetted Holidays: Gazetted holidays, to put it simply, are those that, once decided, are obligatory. In India, almost all businesses, both public and commercial, are closed during these holidays, as per the Public Holidays 2023.

Public Holiday Provisions In India

The Ministry of Home Affairs letter No. 14046/27/83-GP-I, dated 15 February 1984, is the basis on which the administrations of the union territories choose the list of holidays. Under this letter, they are required to observe a total of 16 holidays, including the three national holidays of Republic Day, Independence Day, and Mahatma Gandhi's birthday.

The Negotiable Instruments Act of 1981 governs the declaration of the holidays. They mainly apply to government agencies, and banks in particular. Factories and other enterprises in the commercial and public sectors do not typically adopt them. According to the Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Act of 1946, provisions relating to workdays are included in the Standing Orders of enterprises. Wherein provisions relating to employees working on different days as required by the organization are stated and details are provided regarding their off days for working.

The laws governing factories in our nation do not either allow for the granting of festival holidays to industrial personnel. However, despite this, there are still a number of paid holidays and festivals observed at factories and other industrial establishments. The number of these vacations is typically set by factory owners in their standing orders or service regulations. States also declare paid holidays with a lot of generosity.
