Earlier this morning, the Government of India's state of Punjab amended the list of of the days which are non-working public holidays in India's state of Punjab for the calendar year 2019, by declaring, the afternoon of Wednesday, August 7, 2019, as a one-off non-working public holiday in India's state of Punjab ("Punjab govt declares a half-day holiday in govt offices as a mark of respect to Former External Affairs Sushma Swaraj. The holiday will be for the second half of the day (afternoon)").

The aforementioned notification of Wednesday, August 7, 2019, as a one-off non-working public holiday in India's state of Punjab, thus amends the "annual list of the days which will be non-working public holidays in India's state of Punjab for the upcoming calendar year 2019", which were contained in a notification issued by the Government of Punjab, covering Government Holidays and Restricted Holidays late last year (2018-12-23).

This is the first time, this year, that the list of annual public holidays in India's Sate of Punjab has been amended, in marked contrast to last year, when the list of Punjab 2018 public holidays, contained in the Notification No.6/7/2017-2PP3/S91 (2017-12-28), was amended multiple times (2018-12-27, 2018-11-03, 2018-10-08, 2018-09-17, 2018-09-08, 2018-08-14, 2018-06-28).
