India Public Holidays

India has three national holidays:

26 January Republic Day Adoption of the Constitution of India

15 August Independence Day Independence from British Empire

2 October Gandhi Jayanthi Mahatma Gandhi's birthday

In fact, India has so many religious and secular holidays the government actually has trouble keeping track of them all. At any one time there is a holiday somewhere for something year-round.

There are extensive lists of holidays for Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Jain, Buddhist, Zoroastrian, Ravidassia, and Ayyavazhi religions as well as many secular holidays.

For a complete overview of the complexity of the situation in India visit Wikipedia for further information.
