Nepalese lawmakers, speaking at the Legislature-Parliament, have demanded that the current regional Gaijatra non-working public holiday of Nepal, currently only observed in the Kathmandu Valley, be declared as a nationwide non-working public holiday in Nepal, starting in 2017.

The aforementioned request to make Gaijatra a nationwide non-working public holiday in Nepal starting in 2017, was made following the recent Friday, August 19, 2016, observance of a non-working public holiday in the Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur districts on account of the Gaijatra festival, in line with last spring's (02-Apr-2016) gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2073 (mid-April 2016 to mid-April 2017), but which, as usual (10-Aug-2014 and 12-Aug-2011), restricts the Gaijatra non-working public holiday of Nepal to the "Kathmandu Valley" (Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur districts).
