Maharashtra Day 2020

Maharashtra Day is a regional public holiday in the Indian state of Maharashtra on May 1st. This holiday celebrates the anniversary of the formation of the state on this day in 1960. Note that several other states also observe a holiday on this day for International Labour Day.

History of Maharashtra Day.

In 1960 when the state of Bombay was divided to create two different states, namely Maharashtra and Gujarat, it was under the States Reorganisation Act, 1956, that the boundaries of the state were outlined. 

The main issue was linguistic since there was too much difference between those who spoke Marathi, Gujarati, and Konkani languages. In 1940, the demand for a separate state for Marathi-speaking people began. Samyukta Mahasabha Organisation took form in present-day Mumbai for the statehood movement. However,  due to the Quit India Movement and World War II, the struggle took a backseat. 

In 1960, On May 1st, the state of Maharashtra came into existence with Bombay as its capital city. From speeches to colorful parades, Maharashtra observes this day with a lot of enthusiasm. Under the jurisdiction of the State and Central Government, most schools, colleges, offices remain closed on this day. The Maharashtra Din is commemorated with a parade at Shivaji Park, Dadar, where the Governor of Maharashtra makes a speech. On this day, the state government and private sector introduce new projects and schemes. Liquor sales to Indians are prohibited on Maharashtra Diwas across the state.
