Nepal's government has announced that, as per a Cabinet decision, Sunday and Monday, September 20 and 21, 2015, had been declared non-working public holidays to celebrate the passage of Nepal's new constitution.
Earlier this summer (2015-07-17), the Cabinet of the Government of Nepal had similarly declared 2 non-working public holidays in Nepal on Monday and Tuesday, July 20 and 21, 2015, to ensure maximum number of participation in the public feedback on the preliminary draft of the new constitution.
Note that, after a brief interval in 2000-2001 when a 2-day weekend was tried (2001-01-13), Nepal now observes a 1-day weekend on Saturdays, meaning that Nepal will be on public holidays from Saturday, September 19, until Monday, September 21, 2015, inclusively, in addition to the gazetted list (2015-03-03) of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2072 (mid-April 2015 to mid-April 2016).
