Bank Holidays this week in May 2024: Bank customers across states will have to plan around a possible four-day holiday this week, from May 23-26, on account of Buddha Purnima, Nazrul Jayanti/2024 General Elections and the Saturday-Sunday weekend leaves.

All public banks, including the largest lender, State Bank of India (SBI), have at least ten holidays this month (May 2024). This includes Saturdays off every second and fourth week and all non-working Sundays each week. The complete list is below.

The central bank, or Reserve Bank of India (RBI), determines all banks' holiday calendars for the year in conjunction with declared state government holidays. Not all religious festivals or regional customs are celebrated uniformly and thus may not be marked as non-working days in all states nationwide. 

So, please confirm all holidays and days off with your nearest branch to avoid any inconvenience.
