The long pending issue of adopting the system of staggered holidays for business establishments has now been finalised.

From October 18, the staggered holiday system will come into vogue in the twin cities.

Order already issued

The State government had already issued an order on staggered holidays for specified areas in the State capital, but the Labour Department had not been enforcing it so far.

The system of staggered holidays, if enforced properly, could solve the traffic congestion to some extent, authorities feel.

Following are the days of holidays and the areas.
