Most Holidays are in Saturday and Sunday in 2021 do we need to give mandatory 12 holidays in a year?

In 2021 most of the Holidays coming on Saturday and Sunday.
Based on that Employees may get only 6 or 7 general holidays on Week days.
Is that fine or we need to give mandatory 12 holidays in a year?
Please share your inputs.

Thanks in Advance


no, it is nonmandatory for providing leave 12 days and for the employee welfare concern company may provide the leaves on behalf of Saturday & Sunday holidays.


Dear Ramesh,

I agree with Suresh.p. The phenomenon of falling of Public holidays exactly on weekly holidays like Saturdays and Sundays in any given calendar year is a sheer coincidence. Therefore, it is not a mandatory obligation on the part of employers to compensate.


True @Rameshbv

Agree with @Umakanthan and @suresh.p

It’s not mandatory to choose like that. But I also stress the point employees might not like that.

It’s a human tendency from school till date to look at the holiday calendar and plan trips / family get together, so it will be a mere disappointment for employees.

You can consider other holidays or give more Restricted Holidays to compensate the 12 number.
