Odisha Govt Prepones Eid-e-Milad Holiday

“The Government of Odisha is pleased to declare a holiday of September 28 (Thursday) instead of September 29 (Friday) on account of the birthday of Prophet Muhammad for the state government offices as well as the Revenue and Magisterial courts,” a notification issued by Revenue and Disaster Management Department stated.
