Difference between trading holiday and clearing holiday:

Trading holiday: market is closed, and you can not trade.

Clearing holiday: market is open, you can do trading but there is no settlement on that day. Simply put a clearing holiday is when banks are closed i.e. a bank holiday.
Settlement is the process of delivering the shares and money (Payin and Payout), which is done by the clearing house (say NSCCL) of Stock exchange.
