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

The aforementioned finalized version of the previously-released (2015-06-14) list of official non-working public holidays in Mauritius for the calendar year 2016, now contains the dates which had heretofore been missing, most specifically that of the Tamizh Puttaandu (Varusha Pirappu) new semi-annual non-working public holiday marking the Tamil New Year, after many years (2014-07-26, 2013-06-14, 2012-06-02 and 2011-09-14), when no new annual non-working public holidays had been declared in Mauritius (2001-07-26).

The finalized version of the non-working public holidays in Mauritius for the calendar year 2016 confirms that no non-working public holiday will be declared in 2016 in Mauritius for Thaipoosam Cavadee, which, we surmise, will alternate every year with Tamizh Puttaandu, as has been the case for years with the Assumption andAll Saints annual non-working public holidays of Mauritius.
