Declare policy on public holidays
The Supreme Court has raised questions regarding the Central Government’s policy of declaring a public holiday on a particular day. The Court asked what is the policy framework under which the government announces a public holiday.
A PIL complained that the Centre and State governments arbitrarily notify public holidays mainly to appease a segment of the population. In the absence of any guiding principle or any authority concerning the declaration of gazetted/public holidays in India, the executive at the behest of political groups declare the holidays their whims and fancies and serve the political purpose of appeasement of a particular section of the public.
The need of the hour is that The Union Government should frame a national policy of declaring public holidays.
