Bank holidays: In the outgoing week, the banks were closed on Gudi Padwa (April 9) and Eid-ul-Fitr (April 10).

If you are planning to visit the bank on Saturday, you need to postpone it as the banks will be closed today. Since April 13, 2024 happens to be a second Saturday of this month, the bank operations will be closed. If you want to carry out banking transactions online, it is possible. But any bank-related work requiring help from the employees will not be possible.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has classified bank holidays into three categories: Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act, Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act and Real Time Gross Settlement Holiday, and Banks’ Closing of Accounts.
