Dear friends,

1. Is there an act enected by centrat government which mandates for a compulsory holiday on certain national festivals/days in a year ? I searched on ministry of labor and employment of Govt of India and in the list of acts mentioned i found that there is a link on one act called 'the National & Festival Holidays Act'. However, i could not open the page. I have also heard that there is no such act enacted by a centre.If this is so, how does certain national holidays declared by central govt derive their legality from ?

2. I have also heard that due to certain emmergencies if employees have to work on national holidays then they either get 3 days comp off or 3 days salary. Is it true?

Please guide.

You may refer to Shops and Establishments Act of your State for clarification on this.

 Mr Vinoth,

I did not find any central act pertaining to 'National and festival holidays'.

Also i did not find any act by State of Maharashtra for national holidays.

I too do not find the National Holidays Act but instead I could find Weekly Holidays Act, 1942 which consists of 11 sections. But in the said enactment, there is no mention about the mandatory holidays. But you may refer to the said Act for its subsequent changes.

In maharashtra, there are specific national holidays prescribed in the Shops and commercial establishments act.  However there is no provision in the factories act for such holidays.  However, if these holidays are included in the return of holidays list, followed from years together it amounts to custom, usage and long standing practice.  However for new set up factories, it will not be mandatory.  In other states such as Himachal, Punjab, Orissa, Andhra etc.  the state govts have enacted the national holidays act which is applicable to those states.
