G20 Summit Holidays: September 8 to 10: (Delhi only)
The G20 Summit is a major international gathering of leaders from the world to discuss global economic challenges. This year’s summit will be held in Delhi, India. While the summit itself will entail high-level discussions, schools in Delhi will be closed from September 8 to 10 in order to support the event and manage traffic congestion. This provides school students with the opportunity to observe the country’s involvement in global events.
The main event will feature many top world leaders, including US President Joe Biden, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, among others.
The Delhi police have issued specific rules and precautions for the summit’s smooth operation ahead of time. The gathering of world leaders and other dignitaries will take place on September 9 and 10 at Pragati Maidan’s freshly built state-of-the-art Bharat Mandapam. According to the notification given by the authorities, all markets, banks, and other business facilities in the districts surrounding Pragati Maidan would stay closed. All traffic restrictions will go into effect on Thursday, September 7, and will last until Monday, September 11.
