Earlier tonight, local time, the moon sighting committees of a majority of Indian Sates have announced that there were no news of the Shawwal moon, and therefore that the Eid-ul-Fitr (End of Ramadan) would be celebrated on Thursday, July 7, 2016, instead of the previously-announced date of Wednesday, July 6, 2016.

Following the aforementioned announcements that there were no news of the Shawwal moon, and therefore that the Eid-ul-Fitr (End of Ramadan) would be celebrated on Thursday, July 7, 2016, is in contradiction to India's Central Government's Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, release, last year (13-Oct-2015), of its annual list of public holidays and restricted holidays to be observed in all the Administrative Offices of the Central Government of India, for the upcoming calendar year 2016.

Already, the Indian state of West Bengal has announced that as "it is now gathered that the Id-Ul-Fitre festival may fall on July 7, in view of the uncertainty associated with the date of celebration of the festival, the Governor is pleased to declare July 7 (Thursday) also to be public holiday under the Negotiable Instrument Act.".
