  1. Do Festival Holidays are bank holidays same?

    In India there are multiple festivals which are celebrated at different parts with their diversified dates. Thus there are only a few major festival holidays which do match with the bank holidays but to be precise they don’t match at all times. Individuals have to check calendar for festival holidays and bank holidays as mentioned above based on their state.

  2. Which Saturday bank holiday?

    In most of the states, then 2nd Saturday and 4th Saturday of the month are mostly taken as bank holidays. This rule has been recently modified by giving a half day to every Saturday by removing the full holidays on selected 2nd and 4th Saturdays. Thus based on your bank which might be private or government, the holidays have to be checked.

  3. Does the RBI decide Indian bank holidays?

    The official bank holidays are declared by Reserve Bank of India. Every bank which might be under the supervision of the private bank institute or any government sector, every banking institute has to follow the guidelines of the Reserve Bank of India for issuing the bank holidays.
