4.  The list  of  Restricted Holidays appended to  this O.M.  is meant  for Central 

Government Offices located  in Delhi  / New  Delhi.  The Coordination Committees 

at the State Capitals may draw up separate list of Restricted  Holidays keeping in 

view the occasions of  local importance but the 9 occasions left over, after choosing 

the 3 variable holidays in para 3.1 above, are to be included in the list of  restricted 

holidays.

respect of  Idul Fitr, Idul Zuha, Muharram and Id-e-Milad, if  necessiuy, depending 

upon sighting of  the Moon, would be declared by  the Ministry of  Personnel, Public

6.  During 2011,  Diwdi  (Deepavali) falls  on  Wednesay, October  26,  2011 

(Kartika 04).  In  certain States,  the practice  is to celebrate  the occasion a day  in 

advance,  i.e.,  on "Narakachaturdasi Day".  In view of  this, there is no objection  if 

holiday on account of  Deepavali is observed on 'Naraka  Chaturdasi Day  (in place 

of Deepavali Day) for the Central Government Offices in a State if  in that State that 

day alone is declared as a compulsory holiday for Diwali for the offices of  the State 

Government. However,  in  the year 20 1 1, Diwali  (Deepavali) and Narak Chaturdasi 

Day, both are falling on the same day i.e. October 26, 20 11.

Gandhi's  birthday, as compulsory holidays. The remaining holidays  / occasions 

may  be  determined  by  such  establishments  /  organisations  themselves  for  the 

year 20 1 1, subject to para 3.2 above. 

8.  Union Territory Administrations  shall decide  the list of  holidays in  terms of 

Ministry of  Home Affairs  letter No.14046/27/83-  GP-I  dated  15.2.1984  by which 

they  would  observe  a  total  of  16 holidays  including the  three National Holidays 

Viz. Republic Day, Independence Day & Mahatma Gandhi's birthday. 9.  In  respect  of  Indian  Missions  abroad,  the number  of  holidays  may be 

notified  in accordance with  the  instructions contained  in  this Department's  O.M. 

No.12/5/2002-JCA  dated  17& December, 2002.  In other words, they will have the
