Mumbai, Mar 31: Maharashtra government has declared a holiday for the government and semi-government offices in Mumbai and suburbs on April 2, the day when India and Sri Lanka would play the World Cup 2011 final match at Wankhede stadium here.

"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.
