As per factory act its mandatory to give week off.

Industrial Relations and Labour Laws
Holidays applicable to factories and commercial establishments are governed by State Acts. There are two types of holidays that an establishment should declare, ie, National Holidays and Festival Holidays. Of these national Holidays, ie, January 26th, August 15 and October 2nd (in many States May 1st being International Labour Day or May Day is also a National Holiday. These holidays are mandatory and should be a closed day for all industries whether they work for 8 hours or 24 hours. There are quite number of festival holidays (generally 9 days) which will be declared considering the local and religious sentiments of the employees of the company and is usually done after consulting with the employees every year.

Given the above, if your company is not giving holiday for Durgashtami, Id or Christmas, naturally, you have no right to function. The issue that company works for 24 hours is not the problem of the employees and if you want men to run 24 hours, then you can find out how to run it. Certainly you can engage employees on holidays on rotation basis by giving compensatory offs and double the rate of wages as per law but you cannot completely avoid giving holidays
