All the banks, including the private and public sector banks, will remain closed for up to five days in a row this week, starting from Wednesday, November 10. November is usually the prime month of the festive season, which was observed last week this year during Diwali. During this week, various other festivals, like Chhath Puja in Bihar and Jharkhand, and Wangala festival in Shillong will be celebrated, starting from Wednesday. Private and public sector banks will remain closed for 17 days in the month of November.
As November is full of holidays and happiness for the bank officials. At the same time, it is creating issues for the general public whose work is getting stuck due to the same. But the struggle seems to continue until 14th November 2021. In case you were planning to visit please postpone it. Keeping in mind the festivities across the country Reserve Bank of India has fixed the number of Bank holidays to 11 this month. In total, banks will remain closed for 17 days this month, 11 days being the listed holidays and the rest being the weekends.

For this, only certain branches of the banks in respective states will remain shut on the mentioned holidays. These holidays are not uniformly distributed across the country, except for a few days. Like, if there is a bank holiday today in Patna and Ranchi for celebrating Chhath Puja or Surya Pashti Dala Chhath (Sayan Ardhya) in Bihar and Jharkhand, but the banks will remain open in the other parts of the country. So, we will suggest you visit the nearest branch to know about the complete list of bank holidays anytime in the future.
