List of Holidays in India 2017

The Republic of India has the second largest population in the world. Due to the sizes of the country and its diverse population, India only has three national holidays – Republic Day, Independence Day and Mahatma Ghandi’s Birthday. However, the government of India has granted each of its territories the right to choose holidays based on their religious beliefs, culture, linguistic preferences, or events that are relative to their area – and at a state level there are many more public holidays recognised and celebrated.
