Like other states in India, several public holidays are those celebrated throughout the country. These include Republic Day, Independence Day and Christmas Day. On these days, government offices, schools and many businesses are closed.

Other holidays are specific to Madhya Pradesh and are related to either the Hindu or Muslim calendar. These holidays include Raksha Banahan, Durga Puja/Dussehra and Diwali. Several holidays in Madhya Pradesh are to commemorate the birthdays of prophets, including Milad-un Nabi. Throughout India, Mahatma Ghandi’s birthday is celebrated as a public holiday as well.
