Nepal Cancels April 21 Public Holiday

Face with widespread criticism of its recent decision to declare Monday and Friday, April 17 and 21, 2017, as one-off non-working public holidays in Nepal to mark the departure and return of Nepalese President Bidhya Devi Bhandari on her first foreign visit to India, the Government of India has canceled the Friday, April 21, 2017, one-off non-working public holiday in Nepal.

Nepalese Home Ministry has announced that Nepal's government had declared Monday and Friday, April 17 and 21, 2017, as a one-off non-working public holidays in Nepal to mark the departure and return of Nepalese President Bidhya Devi Bhandari on her first foreign visit to India.

This past weekend (16-Apr-2017), the Nepalese Home Ministry had announced that Nepal's government had declared Monday and Friday, April 17 and 21, 2017, as one-off non-working public holidays in Nepal to mark the departure and return of Nepalese President Bidhya Devi Bhandari on her first foreign visit to India, as had been done, last autumn (27-Oct-2016), the Nepalese government had declared Wednesday, November 2, 2016, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Nepal to mark the arrival in Nepal of Indian President Pranab Mukherjee, in Nepal for a three-day state visit

The aforementioned announcement that Nepal's government had canceled the Friday, April 21, 2017, one-off non-working public holiday in Nepal, thus further amends last month's (25-Mar-2017) gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2074 (mid-April 2017 to mid-April 2018).

Another one-off non-working public holiday will be declared in Nepal on the day when Chinese President Xi Jingping next arrives in Nepal for a state visit, though a date for such a visit has not yet been fixed.
