Banks are the backbone of any nation’s economy. Banks fulfill several financial functions in the economy for the nation, enterprise entities, businesses, organizations, and individuals. Some of the portfolio of services banks offer include accepting deposits, giving loans, wealth management, exchange of currency, money transfers, safe deposit lockers and others. There are different kinds of banks like investment banks, retail banks and commercial banks.

Banks in India decide their policies and processes based on the guidelines issued by the Reserve bank of India. Even the bank holidays follow the common rules developed by the RBI. Indian banks do not work on public holidays that can be national or regional. While national holidays apply universally throughout the country, regional holidays are followed in specific states corresponding to the events of local importance.

Since the regional holidays in a given state might vary based on the gazette published by the concerned state, it is important that you also consult the local holidays on official announcements made by the state government. Indian banks do not work on Sundays. The other common holidays for banks are on the second and fourth Saturdays of all months. Here is the complete list of bank holidays in India for April 2022.
