Are you looking for a list of holidays in India in 2022? If yes, then your search ends here. India is known for various fairs and festivals which form an integral part of Indian culture. If we talk about holidays in India, the country has an extensive list of public and government holidays. These holidays are observed on religious festivals, foundation days of different states, and birthdays of individuals with historical significance.

In this article, I am providing the complete list of public and government holidays in compliance with the Indian holiday calendar. I have done a lot of research to prepare this list. I have analyzed and explored so many authentic sources to prepare the list of public, government, national, bank, state-wise, and gazetted holidays in India. Since the list of holidays in India is long, I have divided the list into different categories namely: Public (National) Holidays in India, Government/Gazetted Holidays, and Bank Holidays in India.
