Indian Eid-ul-Fitr 2018 Public Holidays Update

Earlier tonight, the Moon sighting/Hilal committees of a majority of Indian Sates announced that there were no reported sightings of the Shawwal Moon, and therefore that the Eid-ul-Fitr (End of Ramadan) would be celebrated on Saturday, June 16, 2018, with the exception of the coastal Indian states of Gujarat and Kerala.

As was the case a couple of years ago (05-Jul-2016), tonight's announcement has led to quite a few Indian states revising their list of 2018 public holidays.

The state of Gujarat thus moved the date of its public holiday for the Eid-ul-Fitr from the previously-announced (19-Oct-2017) date of June 16 to June 15, 2018, while there was no change to the date of June 15, previously announced for the state of Kerala (13-Oct-2017).

On the other hand, the following states changed their list of 2018 public holidays by moving their public holiday for the Eid-ul-Fitr from the previously-announced date of June 15 to Saturday, June 16, 2018: Jammu & Kashmir (15-Dec-2017), Puducherry (26-Nov-2017), Tamil Nadu (08-Nov-2017) and Uttarakhand (16-Dec-2017).
