The government of Nepal has announced that Thursday, September 15, 2016, had once again been declared a non-working public holiday in Nepal's three districts of the Kathmandu Valley, Dhulikhel and Dolakha, on account of the upcoming Indra Jatra annual non-working public holiday of Nepal.

The aforementioned announcement, contrary to some past years (2015-09-25, 2013-09-16, and 2011-09-08), in line with last spring's (2016-04-02) gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2073 (mid-April 2016 to mid-April 2017).

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.
