Under the Negotiable Instruments Act 1881, Section 25, the Tamil Nadu government can approve bank holidays each year. Tamil Nadu leaders work in conjunction with the Government of India to create bank holidays that allow employees paid time from work in order to celebrate. On these days, banks, offices, schools and many businesses are closed.
