As a result of changing borders, Punjab recognises fewer holidays than other Indian states and territories. Each Sunday is considered a holiday in Punjab. Under Section 25 of the Negotiable Instruments Act 1881, the Government of Punjab, Department of Personnel, determines each year what holidays are considered public.

A large percentage of Punjab’s population are Sikh. Therefore, many of the holidays celebrated are related to the Sikh religion. Those who practice Sikhism believe in “One Immortal Being,” ten Gurus, the teachings of the Gurus and “baptism bequeathed by the tenth Guru.”
