In the month of October here are several bank holidays as per the mandated list of leaves issued by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). In total, there are 21 bank holidays in the month of October. However, most holidays are state-wise celebrationswhich means banks in specific states will be close.

Except for a few days, the majority of these holidays are only applicable for a handful of cities and states at a time. As per RBI’s Bank Holiday 2021 list, out of the 21 holidays in October, only 14 of them are holidays because of an occasion, the other seven days are weekend leaves, which encompass Sundays, as well as the second and fourth Saturday of the month.

The RBI mandated holidays are grouped under the categories of ‘Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act’, ‘Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act and Real Time Gross Settlement Holiday’ and ‘Banks’ Closing of Accounts’. In the month of October, the majority of the holidays come under the ‘Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act’ classification, however, October 1, the very first holiday on the list, comes under the ‘Banks’ Closing of Accounts’ classification, which is only a holiday for banks located in Gangtok.
