As a matter of fact, the wages will be paid for the National / festival Holidays even the workers are not present on that day. If they work on those days you must pay double Overtime (it will not attract PF) in addition to the Regular Wages for the holiday. So on any national / festival holiday if one engaged then the company has to give them with normal pay alongwith OT.
