The Odisha govt has released its calendar for the year 2024, which includes all types of holidays, festivals, and events related to the Odisha state. If you are living in the state, it becomes essential to have this calendar with you, as there are some festivals that are celebrated exclusively in Odisha.
For residents of Odisha, the holidays may differ from those in other states, with some festivals being particularly prominent in this region. This implies that certain holidays are specific to the state of Odisha and are not celebrated in Jharkhand or other states. Every year, India celebrates three national festivals: Republic Day in January, Independence Day in August, and Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti in October.
Government official sources have announced a total of 27 holidays for the state government offices, Revenue and Magisterial Courts (Executive). Additionally, 18 holidays have been declared for banks and other banking institutions in the state.

To use it on your PC or laptop, you will also need a reader that you can install from Google Play and Microsoft stores.
