Are you looking for the official Assam State Government Holiday List 2012? If yes, then you can get it here along with all other details and information on new changes reflected in it. It seems already late for us to publish and share the list of holidays that state government has announced for the year 2012 as a month has already passed by. However, this article is meant for all those people who still do not have it and especially for those people who have requested us for the same. We were contacted by a lot of people who expressed their disappointment and sheer frustration of not being able to find the information about holidays being declared by Assam Govt. and has therefore requested us to help them out to find it online. We have compiled the list by comparing it with official sources and have made a printable version of it which is available for download.

A number of changes is brought around by the Government while preparing the list of official and restricted holidays and state government employees will have to follow it for the current year. In short, they will now have to work few days more as the numbers of off-days are reduced. So as per the new rule being introduced, three occasions are being marked as half day holiday and the employees will have to work till 01:00PM on those days. Thus it can also be said that offices will remain close for 32 days in the year with choice to avail leave for 2 days from the restricted list. In addition, there are 6 days in the new calendar year where the off days coincide with the weekends i.e. Saturday and Sunday.

The occasions for which half-day holiday is announced are Kati Bihu, Lakshmi Puja and Muharram. Another important change which is brought to effect in 2012 is the reduction of Casual Leaves {CL) from 15 days to 12 days.

Some regular occasion which are actually on the list of official holidays falls on Saturday and Sunday and some of them can be mentioned as Magh Bihu, Bohag Bihu, Tithi of Damodar Dev, Budha Purnima, Tithi of Srimanta Shankar Dev, Janmastami, Durgapuja, Id-Uz-Zuha, Lachit Divas and Su-Ka-Pha Divas. All these days contributes to some extent to increase the number of working days by coinciding with weekends but it may be somewhat disappointing for the employees as it includes some important festivals and occasions. However, the government or local authority does offer Special or Local Holidays to compensate the loss on such event which is then declared the next working day.
