Public holidays are determined by the Government of Puducherry. Holidays are divided into three lists. All government offices and banks are closed on Appendix I and II. Holidays which fall on Sunday are excluded from the list.
The holidays listed on Appendix I are conferred under Section 25 of the Negotiable Instruments Act 1881 and include Thiruvalluvar Day, in remembrance of a renowned poet who is regarded as a saint and philosopher in Puducherry, and De jure Transfer Day, recognising the area’s independence from France. It is important to note that public holidays may be different depending on the region. Appendix II includes holidays such as Tamil New Year’s Day and Deepavali.
Government employees are permitted to choose two listed on Appendix III as paid holidays. These include Bhogi, Ram Navami and Buddha Purnima.
