Mangaluru: DK district administration initially relied on a government notification dated December 9 to declare December 13 as public holiday for schools and colleges. However, based on a representation from Yenepoya Abdulla Kunhi, president, Masjid Zeenath Baksh, educational institutions will now have holiday on December 12.
In a fresh order issued on Saturday, Deputy Commissioner Dr.KG Jagadeesha said schools and colleges in Dakshina Kannada will remain closed on Dec 12, Monday on account of Eid-e-Milad. The government in its December 9 notification had declared December 13 as Eid-e-Milad holiday for entire Karnataka. In light of the representation received from Abdulla Kunhi dated December 2, DC Jagadeesha said holidays for schools and colleges have been advanced keeping in mind interests of students.
Since the government has empowered DCs to declare holiday for educational institutions based on local circumstances, DC has used this option to change the holiday for schools and colleges, said an officer privy to these changes. Interestingly, government offices in the district will remain closed on December 13 as per the original government notification for the festival, the office said adding Eid-e-Milad is not a major festival in DK compared to Bakrid and Ramzan.
