Mauritius 2016 Public Holidays Announced

The Cabinet of the Government of Mauritius has released its approved annual list of the official non-working public holidays in Mauritius for the upcoming calendar year 2016.

After many years (26-Jul-2014, 14-Jun-2013, 02-Jun-2012 and 14-Sep-2011), when no new annual non-working public holidays were declared in Mauritius, the aforementioned communiqué does include a new annual non-working public holiday in Mauritius, as it did a decade ago (26-Jul-2001), this time for the Tamizh Puttaandu (Varusha Pirappu or Tamil New Year).

In exchange, however, no non-working public holiday was declared in 2016 in Mauritius for Thaipoosam Cavadee. It remains to be seen if the change will be permanent, or if Tamizh Puttaandu will alternate every year with Thaipoosam Cavadee, as is already the case for the Assumption and All Saints annual non-working public holidays of Mauritius.

As usual, based on the dates announced for the Mauritius Divali public holiday in some recent years (26-Jul-2014, 14-Jun-2013, 02-Jun-2012, 16-Jul-2007, 19-Jun-2006, 26-Apr-2004 and 30-Sep-2002), the Government of Mauritius is using the northern Indian method of calculating Diwali, rather than the southern Indian method of calculating Deepavali, used by almost all non-Indian governments where Diwali/Deepavali is an official national non-working public holiday, and in particular in Tamil Nadu.
