Dear Member,
The Factories Act, 1948 do not provide us any formats. These are the Factory Rules, Central or State which provide us various forms & therefore name the relevant Rules under which we are to submit this Form V A to the inspectorate authorities for prior permission to work on national & festival holidays.

Re: working on national holiday is a crime
If one has not taken the permission and even then that factory is working then is it punishable OR it does not have any legeal support. If it is like that then what for national holidays?

From India, Pune
Yes, Gandhi ji Birhtday is a national Holiday.Other two are 26th jan. and 15th Aug. regds anil kaushik

Not a crime, but since a national holiday is a paid holiday in all respects and you have to pay wages for not working on that day, you will have to pay double the daily wage or the higher rate of overtime allowance fixed for holidays in addition to the wage/ salary of the worker for his working on a national holiday.

From India, Delhi
Not only now, but right from the very beginning, Mahatma Gandhi's birthday (2 October) had always been a national holiday in addition to the Independence Day (15 August) and Republic Day (26 January).

It is no crime when the law provides for it.Each State have their Holidays working Act.You just need to pay double wages.If you want better HR practice then you can give them one additional day off.
