For Indians, it is government based services and thus my readers here is the list of holidays for post services which is also referred to as “post office”. On the post service where the postage stamps are stick by adhesives and Postal Index Number (PIN) is also mentioned according to the area.

These are the FAQ’s the Indian citizens face in India:

  1. Are post offices open tomorrow?
  2. Why is Second Saturday a holiday in India?
  3. Are post offices open on the weekends?

It depends on the location of whether a post office is open on Saturday. Some post has Saturday hours while other post offices are closed on Saturday. If the post office is open on Saturday, the other days of a week are with shorter hours.

Depending on the day here are all the holidays mentioned, so you can correlate your day and date with the below mentioned holidays and the working hours too.
