Holidays are regulated by the State's Industrial Establishments (National and Festival) Holidays Act. Therefore, there can be different provisions with regard to employment of workmen on a declared holiday. In general, all states seems to have a consensus with regard to such engagement on a holiday provided a notice is served on the employees with a copy to the Inspector (Asst. Labour Officer/ Labour Officer or such other officer who is the controlling authority under the Act, of the area) at least 24 hours before such engagement. This is a kind of declaration that the persons employed on a holiday will be given wages at double the average rate of wages and a compensatory holiday.
