Under Article 78 of the states, all workers are entitled to a full day’s pay on all the recognized public holidays. Article 71 states that in the month of Ramadan, all workers are not allowed to work for more than 36 hours a week. The public holidays are influenced by culture, religion, and historical events.
The banks and government offices close during these public holidays. Businesses do close down, but some stay open all through the holidays.
