NEW DELHI: Bank will remain open only for two days between March 27 to April 4 in India.
According to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) bank holiday calendar, banks will be closed for three days in a row from 27 to 29 March across the country due to the second Saturday and Holi festival.
As March 30 is also a holiday, bank branches in Patna will be closed for four days in a row.
While March 31 is not an official holiday, however, as it’s the last day of the financial year, customers are not entertained.
April 1 is also a holiday, which enables banks to close their annual accounts.
Due to the fact that April 2 is a non-working day on account of Good Friday, banks across the country will be closed.
It is pertinent to mention that March 27 and April 1 will also be local holidays in Upper Assam and Barak Valley due to Assam assembly polls.
Here is the list of the upcoming Bank Holidays in March, and April–
· 27 (Last Saturday)
· 28 (Sunday)
· 29 (Holi Holiday)
· 30 (Holiday in Patna branch)
· 31 (Financial Year-end)
• 1 (Bank closing of accounts)
• 2 (Good Friday)
• 3 April (Working Day)
• 4 April (Sunday)
Some states do not observe bank holidays, so the dates may differ depending on the region or state.
According to the RBI calendar, Banks will be closed on gazetted holidays throughout the country except on four Sundays and two Saturdays.
According to the central bank’s March 2021 Holiday Calendar, banks in different states will be closed on March 22, 29, and 30.
Thus, customers who have any pending bank work should complete it this week; otherwise, they will have to wait until April 3 to get it done.
