TIRUNELVELI: The district administration has declared a local holiday for schools, colleges and State government offices in the district on March 4 in view of the birth anniversary of Ayya Vaikunta Swamy. However, the Plus Two examination will be conducted as per schedule, District Collector M. Jayaraman has said in a statement.

As it is not a holiday under the Negotiable Instrument Act 1881, banks would function normally while the district treasury and the sub-treasuries would function with skeletal strength.

To compensate this local holiday, the second Saturday (March 13) would be a working day, Mr. Jayaraman said.
