Bank Holidays in April 2024: All banks in India, including the State Bank of India (SBI), will be functioning as usual today on April 23. Since Hanuman Jayanti is not a scheduled or gazetted holiday as per the Government of India today will be a working day for all government employees, including bank staff.

Notably, banks in the country have holidays every second and fourth Saturday of the month, which means the next bank holiday this month is on April 27 and 28.
