    I have been told that it is a national holiday in India today. This may well be the case, however I have also been told that under the law of India nobody is allowed to work today as it is against the law to work on a holiday.

    is this true?

    There is no such law, but most offices enjoy this as holiday.

    26th Jan is Government Holiday in India for government officials, schools, colleges and bank because its Republic Day ! It's no obligation that no one should work on 26th Jan so most of the private companies and freelancers do work.

    Basically the law is in favor of employees. There are so many small scale business/companies who treat employees as just money digging machine and even force them to work on Sunday.

    There was a time when nothing was working, even on work days. Now they begin work early and stay back till late, even on holidays. Sometimes I wonder what has happened to those lazy guys all of a sudden!
