The Cabinet of the Government of Mauritius has released its official annual list of the non-working public holidays in Mauritius for the upcoming calendar year 2017.
Last year (14-Jun-2015), 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 list of annual non-working public holidays in Mauritius for 2016 included a non-working public holiday for the Tamizh Puttaandu (Varusha Pirappu or Tamil New Year), though no non-working public holiday was declared in 2016 in Mauritius for Thaipoosam Cavadee.
It now seems that the Tamizh Puttaandu public holiday of Mauritius will alternate every year with Thaipoosam Cavadee, as was already the case for the Assumption and All Saints annual non-working public holidays of Mauritius.
