Banks closed for two weeks in July; check dates and cities here


Banks across the country will be closed for nine days, in addition to the usual holidays such as the second and fourth Saturday of the month and Sundays. The nine public holidays are state-specific public holidays for different occasions, as listed in the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Public Holiday Calendar.

However, online banking will continue to function. It should be noted that public holidays also differ by state and are not observed by all banks. Public holidays also depend on festivals observed in specific states or notification of specific occasions in those states.
