Vacations in Indian people will be a display of multi-cultural and multi-religious celebrations. According to the 2012 calendar India public holiday is mostly spiritual. There are only three national holidays in the nation. All people of India celebrate these together.

While having so many Govt Vacations keep in range with the concept of relaxing co-existence of all religions, there have been requirements for various community systems that the program of lots of spiritual holidays is restricting financial actions.
