Banks will remain closed for a total of fifteen days in July on account of holidays. These include second, fourth Saturdays and Sundays apart from the nine festival-related holidays. As per the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) holiday calendar list, all nine holidays are state-specific holidays for different occasions. So, if you have important bank-related work in July, this calendar will come in handy in planning.

All banks remain shut on public holidays while certain holidays vary from state to state. Only the gazetted holidays are observed by banks all over the country.

RBI has placed the bank holidays under three categories

  • Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act
  • Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act and Real-Time Gross Settlement Holiday
  • Banks’ Closing of Accounts.

Banks across Bhubaneshwar will observe the holiday on July 12 on account of Rath Yatra. The banks will also remain shut on July 12 in Imphal on account of Kang (Rathajatra).
