Ramzan-Id (EId-Ul-Fitr): Banks will remain closed in most of the states except Chandigarh, Sikkim, Kerala, and Himachal Pradesh on April 11. The date of the Eid celebration relies on the Shawwal crescent moon sighting. Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Qatar have declared that Eid will be celebrated on April 10. However, the crescent moon was not spotted in Delhi, Hyderabad, and Lucknow. Hence, Eid celebrations are being held on April 11 in the majority of parts of India.
