Nepalese Prime Minister, Baburam Bhattarai, has announced that Nepal Sambat New Year would be declared an official non-working public holiday throughout Nepal, starting with the Nepal Sambat year 1134 (November 2013).

Although the idea of making Nepal Sambat new year into an official non-working public holiday throughout Nepal had been in the news for years (02-Nov-2010, 10-Oct-2009, and 28-Oct-2008), its declaration as an official Nepalese public holiday will not change much as the date of the Nepal Sambat New Year always falls on the same day as Gobardhan Pooja (the fourth day of the Tihar Festival), which is already an official public holiday in Nepal.
