The government of Nepal has announced that Wednesday, October 29, 2014, had once again been declared a nationwide non-working public holiday on account of the upcoming Chhath annual non-working public holiday of Nepal.

The aforementioned announcement is in line with last spring's (2014-03-02) gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2071 (April 2014-April 2015), but represents a break with past practice, as the Chhath public holiday of Nepal in was often specified as a regional public holiday in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal's capital, although in some recent years the Chhath public holiday of Nepal had also been observed at the national level (2011-10-30).
