As per National and festival holidays act, the following national holidays has to be declared as Holiday in any establishment.
1. Republic day ( 26 th Jan )
2. May day ( 1 st May )
3. Independence Day ( 15 th August )
4. Gandhi Jayanthi ( 2 nd October )
Any employer who contravenes the above, will be penalised as per Act.
That depends from company to company, some companies give indian holidays and some give holidays according to usa, but that also depends on the employment contract signed between an enmployee and employer, it mentions whether usa or indian holidays will be given.
