Employees receive 10 paid public holidays. In India, the holidays vary by state (there are 30 different states), religion, and local custom. Therefore, the government does not stipulate what days the employee have to use as a holiday, but rather allows them to allocate the 10 public holidays as they see fit. have different holidays. does not need to be negotiated.
