Bank Holidays

In accordance with regulations established by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), banks are also closed on Sundays and the second and fourth Saturdays of every month. There are, however, some exceptions to this norm, since banks occasionally continue to operate on the first, third, and fifth Saturdays.

Holidays are categorized into three primary groups by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). Holidays covered by the Negotiable Instruments Act fall within the first category. The second category consists of Real-Time Gross Settlement Holidays and holidays under the Negotiable Instruments Act. Holidays when banks close their accounts are included in the third category. You cannot deposit a check or perform other financial operations on bank holidays. Nevertheless, net banking, mobile banking, and WhatsApp banking still allow you to perform a wide range of financial and non-financial operations.
