The government of India's State of West Bengal has issued the Corrigendum No. 1230/1 (400)-F(P2) changing the previously-announced date for the upcoming Birth Day of Shri Shri Harichand Thakur from April 10, 2022, to March 30, 2022.

As per the aforementioned corrigendum, "Every year Birth Day of Shri Shri Harichand Thakur is celebrated on the auspicious day of Madhu Krishna Trayodashi Tithi. This year the day falls on Chaitra, 1428 BS corresponding to 30th March, 2022 (Wednesday).".

But, as the initial list of 2022 West Bengal public holidays, as contained in the Department Notification No. 3640 -F(P2), listed the Birth Day of Shri Shri Harichand Thakur on April 10, the corrigendum goes on to state that "In view of the above and in partial modification of the notification No.3640-F(P2) dated 26.11.2021, the State Government has decided to declare 30th March, 2022 (Wednesday) as holiday on account of Birth Day of Shri Shri Harichand Thakur in place of 10th April, 2022 (Sunday) notified earlier, in all State Government Offices, Urban and Rural Bodies, Corporations, Undertakings, Educational Institutions and other Offices / Institutions under the control of the Government of West Bengal.".

The initial list of 2022 West Bengal public holidays (2021-11-26) has already been amended 3 times this year (2022-03-24, 2022-02-17 and 2022-02-07).
