October 2021 has quite a number of public holidays including regional and national holidays. Keeping track of bank holidays is essential to ensure that your banking functions and financial activities are not disturbed. Though we are fast shifting to online transactions, banks do play a very important role in our personal, professional, business and social lives.

In India, the functioning of banks is regulated by The Reserve Bank of India. Banks do not work on all Sundays. In addition, they remain closed on the second and fourth Saturdays of every month. The other bank holidays are due to the national and regional festivals and events. On 2October 2021, India will celebrate Gandhi Jayanti and the whole nation will observe a national holiday on that day. While festivals like Ayudha Puja and Vijayadashami are observed as public holidays throughout India, many other holidays are regional.
