On behalf of the central government, the Ministry of Personnel announces the days to celebrate national holidays yearly. The rest of the holidays are given at the states level. Each state has a right to choose holidays based on their religious beliefs and cultural diversities.

The set labor laws of India require that all the employees are given a paid day off for three national holidays. During these days, all business and government offices are closed.
