The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has released the list of bank holidays for the month of November. Banks will be closed for 10 days this month. This includes all Sundays and second and fourth Saturdays.
Bank holidays, as per the calendar provided by RBI, are notified under three categories – Negotiable Instruments Act, Holiday, Real Time Gross Settlement Holiday and Closure of Bank Accounts.
Bank holidays vary from region to region depending on the festival celebrated there or the notification of certain events in that state.
