#AnonymousAll the organisations need to remain closed on the three national holidays. But in case due to some reasons if the organisation needs to be functioning on these days, they need to take prior approval from concerned authority. And the employees those are functioning are entitled to get double wages for the day, and some of the states have placed the provision to claim for compensatory leave. The matter concerning to national holidays is subject of Central Legislations, though some states do have made provisions for compensatory leave to the workers who have worked on these national holidays or paying them double wages.You may kindly refer to the National and Festival Holidays Act. Each State has its own Acts in this regard. The enforcing authority will be the State / Central Labour Department within which your company falls.

So, it depends upon the nature of job for which you have been called to work during national holiday, which you have not mentioned in your query.
