A group of "noted pundits and astrologers" led by astrologer Ponnaluri Srinivasa Gargeya, have petitioned the Chief Minister of the Government of India's State of Andhra Pradesh, N Chandrababu Naidu, to amend the terms of the extra-ordinary Gazette (G.O.RT.No. 2412) the announcement of the days which shall be non-working public holidays for the calendar year 2017, by moving Ugadi from Wednesday, March 29, 2017, to Tuesday, March 28, 2017.

If the aforementioned change were to be approved then it would amend the extra-ordinary Gazette (G.O.RT.No. 2412) an announcement of the days which shall be non-working public holidays for the calendar year 2017 ("the days which shall be observed as General Holidays by all the State Government Offices") which officially lists the annual non-working public holidays to be observed in the Indian State of Andhra Pradesh for the calendar year 2017 and was released by the Government of India's State of Andhra Pradesh last autumn (2016-11-26).

Earlier this month (2017-03-04), a group of astrologers, which follows the Drugganitha Panchangam, also petitioned the Government of India's State of Telangana to amend the terms of the "Telangana GO List of General Holidays, Optional Holidays for the year 2017" (G.O.RT.No. 2529) which officially lists the annual non-working public holidays to be observed in the Indian State of Telangana for the upcoming calendar year 2017, by moving Ugadi from Wednesday, March 29, 2017, to Tuesday, March 28, 2017.

Tuesday, March 28, 2017, is the date when the states of Goa (2016-11-10), Gujarat (2016-12-14), Jammu and Kashmir (2016-12-11), and Maharashtra (2016-11-20), will observe Ugadi in 2017.
