Confusion over holi holiday for central offices in West Bengal
West Bengal is going to observe Holi (Popularly known as dolyatra), tomorrow, the 5th March 2015 but as per the holiday list published by Central Government Employees’ Welfare Co-ordination Committee, Kolkata, the holiday is scheduled on 6th March like rest of the country.
It may be mentioned that this committee is empowered to change a few holidays as per the local custom and practice.
In West Bengal, like most other part of the country, life practically comes to a halt as public transport is rarely visible in the day of festival of colour and it will be really hard for the office goers to find any transport tomorrow. As per the news available with us, service associations are trying hard to get the holiday changed but upto nearly 6 PM, no update is available with us.
Stay tuned for any possible update.
