Dear Richa,

There is no holiday list specified by govt. You have to give minimum holidays as per your company rules. But your holiday list must include national holidays which are compulsory. National Holidays are. 15th August - our independence day, 26th Jan - Our republic day, 2nd October - Gandhi Jayanti and 1st may - labour day and maharstra day.
There is no holiday Act but weekly act is available .

regards,

Hi kamlesh

Thank you. I remember reading somewhere that establishments in Maharashtra excluding mumbai are entitled to 10 days public holidays including the 4 mandatory national holidays. Mumbai is entitled to 10 days plus 2 additional days as optional holidays.

pls correct me if i m wrong

Thanks

Hi Richa ,

As far as my knowlegde goes like other mentioned leaves are entirely dependent on what the company wants to give . However the compulsory ones are Independence Day , Republic Day and Gandhi Jayanthi. Labour or May day is an optional one.

Normally the range is anywhere b/w 8 to 14 days of Festival,State and Government Holidays ( depending on the state there can be one compulsory holiday Ex Karnataka Rajyotsava , Maharastra Day)

Hope this helps.

Regards
Gargi

the minimum no. of holidays vary state by state pl. see your's state rules under the Act.

Dear Friends,

I am curious to know how many National Holidays are mandatory for private limited in Gujarat ? There are state legislations for industrial establishments under National and Festival Holidays, but Govt. of Gujarat does not have such enactment. States like Karnataka, Punjab, Tamilnadu have their rules under this enactment. So, there is a debate in which some consultant categorically says that if the the factories registered in Gujarat under Factories Act 1948 do not opt to give National holidays ( 26th Jan, 15 Aug & 2nd Oct), they can do so. In other words, for manufacturing factories in Gujarat it is not compulsory to declare National Holidays to their workers as paid holidays.

This is very crucial question. Opnions and views of learned friends are cordially invited.

Thanks and regards,
Janak Soni
