Bank Holidays India, List of Bank Holiday 2023: We are in the last leg of the calendar year 2022 and the new year is just around the corner. If you are planning to go to the bank in the new year, then it is advisable to plan your visit beforehand.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) categorises bank holidays into three types: Negotiable Instruments Act, Real-Time Gross Settlement Holiday and Banks’ Closing of Accounts.
Apart from these below-mentioned holidays, banks in the country will also be shut on the second and fourth Saturdays and all Sundays round the year. However, it must be noted that despite these bank holidays account holders can use net banking and mobile banking to do some of their bank work.
Here is the month-wise list of bank holidays in 2023 as per the RBI website:
