The State Government of India's state of West Bengal has issued the Government Order No. 2696-F(P) which amends the list of 2021 public holidays in West Bengal published in the Department Notification No. 3100-F(P2), dated 05.11.2020, by declaring a sectional public holiday on Friday, September 17, 2021, on account of Karam Puja.

The declaration of a sectional public holiday on Friday, September 17, 2021, on account of Karam Puja, follows a regular annual trend (2020-08-17, 2019-08-29, 2018-09-04, 2017-08-25, 2016-09-06 and 2015-08-25).

The Government Order No. 2696-F(P), signed by the Principal Secretary to the Government of West Bengal, M. Pant, reads as follows: "Karam Puja will be celebrated this year on the 17th September (Friday), 2021 / Bhadra 31 Ekadashi, 1428 B.S. In view of this and in continuation of this Department’s Notification No. 3100-F(P2), dated 05.11.2020, the Governor is pleased to declare the 17th September (Friday), 2021 as a Sectional Holiday for all employees of the State Government, Local Bodies, Statutory Bodies, Boards, Corporations and Undertakings, Educational Institutions and other office or institutions under the control of the Government, who celebrate this festival, and also for the employees of tribal Communities employed in Tea Gardens all over the State.".

This further amends (2021-08-13, 2021-03-21, 2021-01-31 and 2020-12-01) the previously-released list of West Bengal non-working public holidays for the calendar year 2021 (2020-11-06).
