    Key Points To Remember:

    • Only Independence Day, Republic Day, and Gandhi Jayanti are considered national holidays in India.
    • Public holidays in India are strictly observed on the regional basis.
    • The list of holiday dates mentioned above is based on the Indian Government where their officers are closed nationwide.
    • Apart from the above, there are various fairs and festivals that are considered as holidays in a few states. However, these change from one year to the other.
    • Even though not government holidays, New Year and Christmas days are considered national holidays too.

    The aforementioned dates of regional public and restricted holidays have been taken from the most authenticated and latest references. There is a possibility that the holiday dates for certain Islamic festivals and the festivals of other communities may be revised later on. We are not responsible under such circumstances.
