The Andaman and Nicobar Islands are a group of islands located where the Andaman Sea and Bay of Bengal meet. The islands are one of seven union territories of India. The islands are known for their white beaches and offer landscapes that are filled with stunning natural beauty. The majority of the citizens are Hindu, according to the 2011 census. The islands celebrate public holidays that are common throughout India.
Because the islands are controlled by India, the Indian government determines what holidays are considered official. Many of the holidays celebrated are related to Hindu celebrations, although some are based on other religions as well as significant political moments in the nation’s history. Announcement of the holidays for the upcoming year are normally released at the end of September each year. The government releases three annual listings. One is known as the General Holidays listing, although it is sometimes called Public Holidays or Gazetted Holidays. Another is the list of Restricted Holidays which is related to the religious holidays recognised. The final list is known as the Bank Holidays list and it indicates when banks are closed each year.
On public holidays, businesses and governmental agencies in the Andaman and Nicobar islands may close in order to celebrate the holiday.
