Coincidence of any national or festival holiday on a weekly holiday for the establishment or an individual employee is a natural phenomenon. If the employee is only required to work on that day, he is entitled to the benefits of double wages or alternative holiday as per the applicable law in this regard. On the contrary, if he is allowed to avail the holiday, it automatically merges with the holiday.
