Holiday List 2013 - India

The India Holiday list 2013 includes Ghazatted holidays as announced by the Government of India and also includes major Festivals of India :

India is a multicultural and multi-religious society and celebrates holidays and festivals of various religions. In addition to national holidays, many states and regions have local festivals depending on religious and linguistic demographics.

The Union Government designates national holidays which are generally observed all over the country, although they are mandatory only for Union Government institutions. State governments generally specify additional holidays depending on their demographics. For example, Guru Nanak Jayanti is a holiday in the North Western states of Haryana and Punjab, and in Delhi, but it is not a holiday in other states and territories where there is no significant Sikh population.
