Nepal's Home Ministry has issued a communique stating that February 15 and 18, 2010, would not be public holidays on the occasion of Nepalese President Ram Baran Yadav's impending state visit to India, as custom would normally have had it.

More generally, Nepal's Home Ministry has announced that it plans to end the tradition of giving public holidays on days when the Nepalese head of state embarks on, and returns, from a state visit, as used to be done under the monarchy (2002-06-22).
