You are asking that how many holidays a manufacturing organization can give in a year & the answer is 'as you can'.You are required to give minimum statutory national & festival holidays in a year if your organization is covered in any of the laws which require declaration of national & festival holidays.If your manufacturing organization is covered under the Factories Act, 1948 & your appropriate Govt. is any of the States then go through that State Industrial Establishment ( National & Festival holidays and Casual & Sick Leaves) Act for grant & declaration of these holidays.
