The Government of India's State of Telangana has amended 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 calendar year 2017, by moving the Naraka Chaturthi and Diwali public holiday from October 17-18, 2017, to October 18-19, 2017.

The aforementioned notification reads: "In partial modification of the orders issued, notifying the General Holidays and Optional Holidays in G.O.Rt.No.2529, General Administration (SPL.E) Department, dated 22.11.2016, Government hereby declare the Optional Holiday on 18.10.2017 (Wednesday) on occasion of ‘Naraka Chaturdhi’ instead of 17.10.2017 (Tuesday) and General Holiday on 19.10.2017 (Thursday) on account of ‘Deepavali’ instead of 18.10.2017 (Wednesday)".

The change to the Naraka Chaturthi and Diwali public holiday from October 17-18, 2017, to October 18-19, 2017, as approved by Telangana Chief Minister, K Chandrashekhar Rao (G.O Rt.No.2139 Dated 16.10.2017), thus amends, again (2017-09-01 and 2017-07-06), the "Telangana GO List of General Holidays, Optional Holidays for the year 2017" (G.O.RT.No. 2529) which officially listed the annual non-working public holidays to be observed in the Indian State of Telangana for the calendar year 2017 and was released by the Government of India's State of Telangana last autumn (2016-11-23).
