Public Holidays 2015

We currently have public holidays for 2015 listed. Scroll down to view the national list or choose your state from the list.

Introduction

Only three public holidays are officially national, being Republic Day, Independence Day and Mahatma Gandhi’s Birthday. The majority of public holidays are set by each state government each year under the Negotiable Instruments Act, and their lists of dates are normally first published in December for the following year. The information on this website is as accurate as possible, however we make adjustments throughout the year based on announcements from state governments. Also, the list of 2015 dates below is likely to have some changes once each state government releases their official 2015 list. We will keep you updated on Facebook of any changes made, so please be sure to connect with us.
