Banks are generally closed every Sunday of a month. However, they are open on the first and third Saturdays of the month which means the second and fourth Saturdays are holidays.
RBI circulates bank holiday details every month. In May, the holidays were segregated into three categories – Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act; Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act and Real-Time Gross Settlement Holiday; and Banks’ Closing of Accounts.
This month, there are four holidays under the Negotiable Instruments Act.
Of the total 11 holidays, banks have already utilised 5 holidays which were on May 1 (Sunday), May 2 (Eid-UI-Fitra), May 3 (Bhagvan Shree Parshuram Jayanti/Ramjan-Eid (Eid-UI-Fitra)/Basava Jayanti/Akshaya Tritiya), May 8th (Sunday), and May 9th (Birthday of Rabindranath Tagore).
Now only six holidays are left. Bank holidays from May 14th to May 16th, and then May 22 (Sunday), and further from May 28 to May 29 as the fourth weekend.
