With these holidays banks in India were closed for up to 17 days during the month of November. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has published a list of bank holidays that will be observed. With the exception of a few national holidays, these days off do not normally overlap because they are honoured in a state-by-state way. This means that on a given day, only particular bank branches in respective states will be closed.

The Reserve Bank of India has announced that banks will be granted vacations in three categories. The Negotiable Instruments Act, the Holiday, the Real-Time Gross Settlement Holiday, and the Banks’ Closing of Accounts are all examples. Every bank throughout the country, including the public sector, private sector, foreign banks, cooperative banks, and regional banks, would be closed on these designated days.
