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.
