Banks will remain closed for a total of fifteen days in July 2021 on account of regional holidays. These holidays also include second and fourth Saturdays as well as Sundays.
Banks remain shut on public holidays while certain holidays vary from state to state. Only the gazetted holidays are observed by banks all over the country. As these holidays are state-specific, all banks will not remain closed for all nine days in all the states.
According to Reserve Bank of India, bank holidays fall under three categories – holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act, holiday under Real-Time Gross Settlement and holiday on account of Closing of Accounts.
Banks will remain closed in almost the entire country on July 21, due to Bakrid or Eid-Ul-Adha.
