May 01 holiday cancelled

The Government has cancelled the Public and Bank Holiday falling on May 01, 2018.

This has been done due to the Vesak Week being held from April 26 to May 2.

The relevant Gazzette notification has been issued by Home Affairs Minister Vajira Abeywardena by virtue of the power vested in him under the Holidays Act, No. 29 of 1971.

Instead, the government has declared May 07 as a holiday in lieu of the cancelled holiday on May 01.
