Nepal Mulls 2015 Dashain Public Holidays Extension

A spokesperson for the Home Ministry of the Government of Nepal, Laxmi Prasad Dhakal, has announced the Nepalese Home Ministry was tabling a proposal to extend the upcoming Dashain, 5-day, Nepalese public holidays, into a 15-day period of non-working public holidays throughout Nepal, "in view of the ongoing fuel crisis in the country due to the Indian restriction on importing fuel".

The aforementioned proposal to extend the upcoming Dashain, 5-day, Nepalese public holidays, into a 15-day period of non-working public holidays throughout Nepal, would be in addition to the gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2072 (mid-April 2015 to mid-April 2016), announced, earlier this spring (03-Mar-2015).

The proposal, as it stands, would make the upcoming Dashain Nepalese public holidays run from the date of the upcoming Ghatasthapana annual Nepalese public holiday, which is the day after important exams in many Nepalese schools, until the date of the upcoming Kojagrat Purnima annual Nepalese public holiday (which, in fact, covers a period of 14 days only, meaning that the "15 days" mentioned by Nepalese Home Ministry officials actually refer to 2 full weeks).
