The Govt. of WB declared the 14th April,2009 as Public Holiday under N.I. Act on account of birthday of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, vide the Finance Dept. Notification No. 2750-F dated the 7th April,2009. However, the State Govt. offices remained closed on the 14th April,2011 on the same occasion as per the Notification shown below. But, this time it was NOT declared as a Public Holiday under N.I. Act. Why such disparity?

Actually 14th April, 2012 was already listed in holidays being 1st day of Bengali New Year.November 15, 2012 at 4:13 pm #75308
It was the 14th April, 2011 and NOT the 14th April,2012November 15, 2012 at 4:33 pm #75310
But, this time it was NOT declared as a Public Holiday under N.I. Act.
What do you mean by this time? April, 2011?November 15, 2012 at 5:18 pm #75312
Yes. “this time” relates to the publication of Notification dated 8th April,2011. It was a comparison between Notification No. 2750-F dated the 7th April,2009 and No. : 2741-F(P) dated the 8th April, 2011.November 15, 2012 at 5:44 pm #75314
I see, I think the word “This” should be replaced by “That” Isnt?November 15, 2012 at 6:36 pm #75317
No, “this time” is appropriate use. Always go by the application & sense and not by the literal meaning. The post clearly shows the comparative study between 14th April,2009 (that time) and 14th April,2011 (this time). Anyway, what may be the explanation of such disparity in the norm of declaration of Holiday on the same occasion but in different years!November 15, 2012 at 6:41 pm #75318
Is there any modification in N.I. Act after 2009?November 15, 2012 at 6:51 pm #75320
No, no modification in N.I. Act after 2009.
