Is it a genuine query ??
I am surprised to see such query from the member who professes to be an HR GENERALIST.
Ignorance of Law is not an excuse; especially for a HR professional knowledge of such provisions is a must.
Raising or having such basic queries, question the competence and education of such concerned HR and invite ridicule for the profession.
Warm regards.

In India, it is MANDATORY , to give a Holiday(Fully paid leave) on ALL the National Holidays and also on the National / State/ Municipal/ Local Election day.
Mandatory =
required by law or mandate; compulsory.
"wearing helmets was made mandatory for pedal cyclists"
synonyms: obligatory, compulsory, binding, required;
An Indian employee, on work abroad, may be expected to work on these days,with compensatory off in future.
However,in Special Industries like Hospital, hotel, Air transport, Rail transport etc. exceptions may be made WITH a provision for a Compensatory off (fully paid Leave).
Kindly correct me, if needed.
National holidays are observed in all states and union territories.
India has three national days.They are:
Date English name
26 January Republic Day
15 August Independence Day
2 October Mahatma Gandhi's birthday.

There are 4 mandatory holidays in Maharashtra. May 1 being the fourth one.
6th December 2013 From India, Mumbai
yes it is mandatory to give off on national holiday but you can take perimission from local labour inspector to work on that particular date, however remeber that you have to pay thrice the wages on that date including c/off
7th December 2013 From India, Patiala
Shri.manish guptaji, where it is written to pay thrice wages on National holidays. you are requested to give the reference.

Dear Sir, the List of Holidays in Maharashtra is more than 4. The List of Govt. Holidays in India,on a STATE level, differs according to the diff states.
I believe they are NOT included under NATIONAL holidays.
May 1 is a Universal Labor day and hence a Holiday, though it also Happens to be THE Maharashtra Day, & that's a different issue.
I am not aware of it being considered as a National holiday in India.
Kindly correct me, if so.

Dear Raj Kumar ji,
I am absolutely accepted your answer, 'Yes' some of the people who doesn't know the fundamentals they are asking questions. Of-course its not mistake, some of the unit heads they want to pinching the HR professional ( even though they know) in the review meetings why such holiday is necessary ? If we are paying OTs we can meet the production targets etc, etc, etc. Its a shame full such questions asking.
