Singapore's Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has released an updated version of the previously-released list of 2021 Singapore public holidays and bank holidays for the upcoming calendar with, for the first time in recent memory, contains updated dates for the 2 annual Muslim public holidays observed in Singapore.

This past summer (2020-06-24), Singapore's Ministry of Manpower (MOM) released the official list of non-working public holidays and bank holidays in Singapore for the upcoming calendar year 2021.

Although that list of 2021 public holidays did not include any error in the date of the 2021 Deepavali public holiday in Singapore, for a seventh consecutive year (2014-04-07, 2013-04-09, 2012-04-09, 2009-02-10 and 2008-02-25), it did include the mention "Subject to change" for both of the annual Muslim public holidays of Singapore, namely Hari Raya Puasa (the End of Ramadan) and Hari Raya Haji (the Feast of Sacrifice), something that was never done in recent years.

Coincidentally, or not, last month (2020-10-23), the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (Majilis Ugama Islam Singapura) released its annual official Islamic Calendar to be used in Singapore for the calendar year 2021, in which the date of the Hari Raya Haji is a day later than the date announced by Singapore's Ministry of Manpower in its initial list of 2021 public holidays.
