Dadra and Nagar Haveli are located in the centre of the Daman Ganga River watershed with the Western Ghats rising to the east. The area is land-locked although it is possible to access the Arabian Sea through the state of Gujarat. Almost 94 percent of the citizens of Dadra and Nagar Haveli practice Hinduism. Because of this high percentage, many of the public holidays determined by the Administration of Dadra and Nagar Haveli are related to the Hindu religion.
The Dadra and Nager Haveli government divide public holidays into three annexures when they released to the public. Annexure I indicates public holidays which apply to all government and semi-government offices as well as local governments and commercial banks. These holidays include Republic Day, Independence Day and Christmas Day. Employees may choose two holidays listed under Annexure II, many of which are religious or cultural holidays such as Shivaji Jayanti or Vaisakhi/Vishu. Annexure II lists holidays approved under the Negotiable Instruments Act 1881 which apply to industrial establishments, the public sector and commercial banks. Employees must be given paid holidays on any date listed under Annexure III. These holidays include Bank’s Annual Closing Day, Holi, Mahatma Ghandi’s Birthday and Labour Day.
