The Hush Post: Punjab government has announced a public holiday on September 19 in the state. All the boards, corporations and educational institutions shall remain closed on that day. The holiday has been announced in view of the Zila Parishad and Panchayat Samiti polls scheduled to e held on September 19.

Deputy Commissioner of various districts of Punjab will inform the respective authorities about the decision of the government soon.


  1. Again a discriminatory order by Punjab Govt authorities against Banker’s of state. Banker’s have been put on poll duties but the authorities have again forgotten to declare this holiday under N I. Act depriving Banker’s of deserving holiday but instead have been forced to function with negligible manpower which may cause erring and short tempered customer’s to show their tantrums to Banker’s. This repeated omission of Banker’s from granting holiday’s under N.I. Act is causing a resentment amongst Banker’s. The concerned authorities should take note of it and correct this in future events.
