If sunday is also included in your salary calculation, it well and good you need to bother about it. But If your calculation is based on 26, then you have pay one day wage in excess for 26th Jan which is a national holiday. If you refer the wages clause in NFH act, it says notwithstanding any contract to the contrary, every employee shall be paid wages for each of the hoilday allowed to him/her under section 3 (sec 3 is national hoildays). So all national holidays are paid holiday and exemptions cannot be taken as it falls on unpaid weekly off.
