The Jakarta branch of Indonesia's Ministry of Manpower and Transmigration, announced that, Wednesday, October 22, 2014, the day of the upcoming Southern Indian Deepavali, had been declared as a one-off non-working public holiday for "all Indian nationals and Indonesians of Indian descent on Wednesday so they can celebrate Deepavali, or the Hindu New Year" [sic].

The dates of legislative and presidential elections in Indonesia are regularly declared one-off non-working public holidays (2014-07-02, 2014-06-26, 2014-04-05, 2014-04-03, 2009-03-31, 2009-07-03 and 2004-03-30), but such sectorial public holidays in Indonesia have been unheard of, ever since Chinese New Year has become an official annual non-working public holiday (2002-04-11, 2002-02-18), and 2001-01-19).
