KK!HRFor this you need to check whether your State has a National & Festival Holidays Act, if so l follow it. In any case the National Holidays like Republic Day, Independence Day, Gandhi Jayanthi (Certain states have 1st May, Ambedkar Jayanthi) have to be necessarily holidays. Regarding festival holidays you may also contact the local Labour Office.
