RTI No National Holiday on August 15 January 26 October 2

RTI No National Holiday on August 15 January 26 October 2

Ten-Year-old girl Aishwarya Parashar filed a right to information application asking the question to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) in April this year.

The PMO transferred her application to the ministry of home, which, in turn, forwarded the application to the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) saying the subject matter of the application, the declaration of national holidays, does not pertain to MHA.

On May 17, the Ministry of home said the government has issued no such order, which notifies January 26, August 15, and October 2 as the national holidays.

After this, she filed an appeal to the Ministry of home saying she has learnt about national holidays through her textbooks and that ministry probably has erred in saying that it does not possess any order on declaration of national holidays.

However, the response to the appeal only upheld the response of the ministry.
