2020 school vacations India

There is no central source for school vacation data in India. We therefore source school vacation data from many different sources in India. Our data includes official data from local governments (like Goa) or schools in India. School vacation data is updated continuously so please visit our website again if you want to see updated data.

There is no standardised national school holiday schedule in India. The school year normally starts in April and ends in March the following year. In southern parts of the country this is slightly different with the school year starting in June and ending in April. In most parts of India the summer break starts half May and ends at the end of June.
