Banks will remain closed for 4 consecutive days, check dates


Holidays in March 2022: Bank employees will enjoy a long weekend this week, while customers should be careful about the days they go to the bank for work. These holidays include weekends and Holi.

Banks in all private and public sectors will remain closed for up to nine days due to various public holidays. This is according to a list prepared by India’s central bank RBI. The Reserve Bank of India has published a list of public holidays for the year 2022 in its annual list. Holidays have been prepared according to this list.

Holi, one of India’s biggest festivals, falls on March 18, 2022, and banks across the country, with few exceptions, will be closed.

Public holidays come into force according to a list published by the Reserve Bank of India or RBI. According to a list from the central bank, the number of public holidays has been set at six this month. The rest are weekend holidays. This includes every Sunday of the month, as well as the second and fourth Saturdays. Banks remain open the first and third Saturdays of each month. The list of RBI public holidays falls into three categories. These are state celebrations, religious holidays and festival celebrations.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) prepares the list of public and private sector bank holidays at the beginning of every year. It generally notifies holidays under three broad tranches – negotiable instruments law, public holidays, real-time gross settlement holidays, and closure of bank accounts. All banks including public sector, private sector, foreign banks, cooperative banks and regional banks across the country will remain closed during these holidays.

It should be mentioned that public holidays also vary from state to state. To celebrate the Holika Dahan festival ahead of Holi, banks will be closed in Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand on March 17. Holi will be celebrated on March 18 across the country. Banks will be closed in Ahmedabad, Aizawl, Belapur, Bhopal, Chandigarh, Dehradun, Gangtok, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Jammu, Kanpur, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai, Nagpur, New Delhi, Panaji, Patna, Raipur, Ranchi, Shillong, Srinagar on Friday March 18.

Lenders will also remain closed in some states – Orissa, Manipur and Bihar due to Holi or Yaosang on March 19. Banks also remain closed on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month and every Sunday of the month. So, lenders will also remain closed on March 20 across India.
