India 2018 Punjab Public Holidays Already Amended

Less than a week after it announced the list of Punjab 2018 public holidays in its Notification No.6/7/2017-2PP3/S91, the Government of India's state of Punjab, facing widespread criticism by opposition parties and religious organizations, has amended its list of the days which will be non-working public holidays in India's state of Punjab for the upcoming calendar year 2018.

Earlier this week (28-Dec-2017), the Government of India's state of Punjab had issued the Notification No.6/7/2017-2PP3/S91 containing the list of the non-working public holidays in India's state of Punjab for the upcoming calendar year 2018, covering Government Holidays and Restricted Holidays in India's state of Punjab for the upcoming calendar year 2018.

At the time, we remarked that as compared to last year's list of public holidays in India's state of Punjab (18-Dec-2016), the list of Government Holidays and Restricted Holidays in India's state of Punjab for the upcoming calendar year 2018, was sharply reduced, though we did point out that later one-off announcements of public holidays in India's state of Punjab were always possible (24-Dec-2017, 01-Sep-2017 and 22-Apr-2017). We did not think that our prediction would be borne out so soon.

Today's additional gazetted holidays announcement by the Government of India's state of Punjab restores 3 public holidays that had been moved to the restricted list of Punjab holidays for 2018: Maha Shivrarti, Vaisakhi, and the Martyrdom day of Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Ji.
