Kerala state government employees are in for a treat as they are set to get a week-long holiday in the second week of this month, beginning September 8. Kerala government offices and state-run public sector units (PSUs) will reopen only on 16 September with a number of state holidays falling between the dates.

Beginning September 8, which is Sunday, following holidays will be observed throughout the week:

September 9 – Moharram
September 10- Uthradom Onnam Onam
September 11- Thiruvonam
September 12- Moonam Onam
September 13- Sree Narayana Guru Jayanthy

In contrast, the central government offices in the state will be closed only for two days, September 9 and September 11. A regional committee which declares the local holidays in the state might decide to declare the Moharram holiday on September 10 so that employees get a two-day break, sources said.
