Clearing or settlement holidays are different from trading holidays. So, there are two separate lists of holidays published each year by the exchange.
To put it simply, clearing holidays are days when no settlement or delivery of stocks/commodities happens. These are usually the days of banking holidays.
A settlement is a process of delivering shares and money, carried out by the clearinghouse, like NSCCL. On clearing holidays, therefore, the market remains open for trading (except for the currency segment), but not the settlement houses.
Here is a complete list of clearing/settlement holidays of 2021.
