Mumbai: Maharashtra government has declared
a holiday for government and semi-government offices in Mumbai
and suburbs on April 2, the day when India and Sri Lanka would
play the World Cup final match at Wankhede stadium.

"The government has declared a local holiday in the
city and suburban district for government and semi-government
offices on April 2," an official said.

The decision was taken after the city police requested
the government to declare a holiday on Saturday to reduce
crowd movement in the metropolis, particularly south Mumbai,
where the stadium is located.
