Hi all,
I am the HR Generalist in my company based in Sydney,Australia and we have an office in Noida. Does anyone have a list of public holidays that they recognise for 2017 that you wouldn't mind sharing?
I want to ensure my staff in India get the right amount of public holidays and are in line with best practices with other companies based in India.
Thank you,

From Australia, Sydney
