However, customers should note that holidays vary across states in India due to regional differences. They must confirm the full list of non-working days with their nearest bank branch. Doing so will help them better plan and avoid last-minute confusion and emergencies.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) works with the corresponding state governments to decide on banks' holiday calendar for the year. Therefore, schedules may differ due to the local customs across states.

Please note that online banking and mobile banking will continue uninterrupted regardless of any holidays, unless specifically stated by a bank for technical or other reasons. Customers can access banks' mobile apps, ATMs or websites to conduct urgent transactions. However, if you need help from bank staff, it's prudent to plan around the listed leave schedule.
