Banks to Remain Shut in these days in the month November- Full List

Bank holidays come into effect as per a list released by the Reserve Bank of India or RBI. However, save for a few national holidays, these days off do not usually clash with one another as they are observed in a state-wise manner. This means, only certain branches of the banks in respective states will remain closed on a certain day. For example, banks will remain closed in Bengaluru on Kannada Rajyostsava, but services will be available in the other parts of the country. For this, bank customers are generally asked to visit the branch nearest to them to know about the complete list of bank holidays.

The Reserve Bank of India has said that banks will get holidays under three brackets. These are the Negotiable Instruments Act, Holiday, Real Time Gross Settlement Holiday and Banks’ Closing of Accounts. On these notified days, every bank, which includes the public sector, private sector, foreign banks, cooperative banks and regional banks across the country will stay closed.

All the branches of the banks remain closed Republic Day (January 26), Independence Day (August 15), and Gandhi Jayanti (October 2), Christmas Day (December 25). Banks also remain shut on festivals including Diwali, Christmas, Eid, Guru Nanak Jayanthi, Good Friday. The RBI has also made Sunday a compulsory leave for all banks, apart from second and fourth Saturdays of each month. However, since the state-wise holidays vary, lenders in your state may not down their shutters on all those days.

Going by the RBI list of holidays in the upcoming month, all banks across the country, except those in Bengaluru, will remain closed on Diwali, which falls on November 4. Apart from this, only the weekend leaves would be uniformly applicable to all banks across India on the same day.
