This page contains a calendar of all 2017 Haryana public holidays. Please scroll down to view.

Haryana is one of the most economically developed areas in South Asia with many agricultural and manufacturing industries. It was created from East Punjab in 1966 and is bordered by Punjab as well as Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan and the Yumana River. More than 87 percent of the country practices the Hindu religion while just over seven percent are Muslim and just under five percent practice Sikhism.

Public holidays in Haryana are approved by the General Administration Department of the Haryana Government. All Saturdays and Sundays are considered holidays in Haryana. Despite the fact that a very small percentage of the population is Christian, Christmas Day is a public holiday. On Schedule I holidays, which include Christmas as well as Republic Day and Haryana Day, all government offices are closed. On Schedule II holidays, employees may choose two as paid holidays. These include Guru Gobind Singh’s birthday, Good Friday and Karwa Chauth. On Schedule III holidays, commercial businesses may also close in Haryana. These holidays include Holi, Janmashtami and the Annual Closing of Bank Accounts.

On public holidays, many festivals, parades and celebrations take place. Many of the celebrations include cultural and historical activities designed to keep the Haryana culture alive.
