I do not think it is possible. As per National and festival holidays act establishment has to declare holidays for the subsequent year for a particular establishment or factory which is applicable for both permanent and contract workers as a whole.

The holidays are declared for the establishment, so it would apply to all working in the establishment, be it direct or indirect. Are you working 24X7, then certain essential services are required to be done and the required personnel have to be there. Here, the treatment has to be common for both the direct and indirect workers. At any rate, it is imperative that the statutory provision in this regard is complied.
I have encountered a situation like this, where contract labour were surreptitiously called by Shop Floor officials for duty on the day of Holi Festival and one of them met with a minor accident. It became very difficult to handle the situation.
So if you are calling any indirect worker for duty, please ensure all due compliances

Dear friend,

Certainly you cannot do so since holidays form part of the service conditions of all the workmen employed in the same establishment irrespective of their status of employment.

In this connection, I'd like to quote that the Supreme Court held in its judgement in B.H.E.L Workers Union, Haridwar & Others v Union of India [ 1985(50) FLR 205 S.C ] that no particular distinction should be made only on the basis of the contract labor and contract labor are entitled to the same wages, holidays, hours of work and conditions of service as applicable to workmen directly employed by the principal employer of the establishment on the same or similar conditions of work.
