The Reserve Bank of India categorizes its holidays into three groups: Bank Closing of Accounts; Holidays under the Negotiable Instruments Act; and Holiday under the Negotiable Instruments Act and Real Time Gross Settlement Holidays.
It is important to remember that different states have different bank holidays, and not all banks follow them. Financial holidays are also contingent upon the festivals observed in particular states or the announcement of particular events.
Holidays of the mentioned days will be observed in various regions according to the state-declared holidays, however for the gazetted holidays, banks will be closed all over the country.
