Welcome the the Public Holidays India site where you’ll find a full list of public holidays for 2014 as defined by each state government. 2015 public holidays dates will soon be released in the later part of 2014.

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 2014 dates below is likely to have some changes once each state government releases their official 2014 list. We will keep you updated on Facebook of any changes made, so please be sure to connect with us.
