The State Chief Secretary of India's state of Uttarakhand, Utpal Kumar Singh, has announced public sector holidays at all government offices in Uttarakhand until Sunday, May 3, 2020, inclusively ("Government offices to remain closed in Uttarakhand till May 3 in view of coronavirus lockdown").
The aforementioned declaration of public sector holidays at all government offices in Uttarakhand until Sunday, May 3, 2020, inclusively, is in addition to the annual list of public holidays in India's state of Uttarakhand for the upcoming calendar year 2020 ("In exercise of the powers conferred by the explanation of Section 25 of Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881 (Central Act 26 of 1881) read with the Government of India, Ministry of Home Affairs Notification No.1079/xxxi(15)G-74/2016-19, the Government of Uttarakhand hereby declares the days to be public holidays during the calendar year 2020"), is contained in a Notification issued by the Government of Uttarakhand, covering Government Holidays and Restricted Holidays in India's state of Uttarakhand for the upcoming calendar year 2020 (2020-01-15), as in past years (2018-12-31, 2017-12-16 and 2016-11-13).
As mentioned when we originally announced the list of 2020 public holidays in Uttarakhand, subsequent changes to the list of annual public holidays, government holidays and bank holidays, in India's state of Uttarakhand, are always possible (2019-11-01, 2019-06-05 and 2019-03-20), as was the case, a couple of months ago, when the Chief Minister of India's state of Uttarakhand, Trivendra Singh Rawat, declared Thursday, July 16, 2020, as a non-working public holiday in Uttarakhand, on account of the Harela festival.
