The Government of India's state of Assam has announced its annual list of the days which will be non-working public holidays in India's state of Assam for the upcoming calendar year 2021 ("The Governor of Assam is pleased to declare that the offices under the Government of Assam and all Revenue and Magisterial Courts in Assam will remain closed on the following days during the year 2021.").

The aforementioned annual (2019-12-01) notification of the list of 2021 public holidays in India's state of Assam are contained in the Government Notification No.GAG(A).81/2016/637.

To the aforementioned main list of government holidays in 2021 in Assam, the Government Notification No.GAG(A).81/2016/637 adds:

• A list of 2 half-day public holidays on August 19 and October 20, 2021.

• A list of 18 holidays to be declared as such under section 25 of the Negociable Instrument Act 1881.

• All second and fourth Saturdays of the month.

• A bank holiday on April 1st.

• A list of restricted holidays from which each employee is allowed to select 2 holidays.

Amusingly, the main list of Assam State government holidays in 2021 does include Bhatri Dwitiya on November 6, 2021. Recall that, only yesterday, the Gorkhas community of Assam were complaining that the, as yet unpublished, list of 2021 public holidays in Assam, did not contain their Bhatri Ditiya holiday (2020-12-17).
